Fire investigators will determine the official cause.
Eagle Coffee was established in the Inner Harbor in 1921 and moved to its Penn Fallsway location in 1970, Constantinides said. The company employs 20 people and distributes coffee to grocery stores, restaurants and diners, mainly in Maryland and Virginia, he said.
Constantinides said some boxes and supplies — "nothing major" — were destroyed in the fire, but he estimated that the damage to the building could exceed $150,000. The building is insured, and an official estimate will be done Tuesday, he said.
Ensor Street was temporarily closed from Orleans Street to Greenmount Avenue while firefighters hosed water into the building through broken windows and onto the roof.
