Church of the Ascension, located at 600 Gilpin, near 6th Avenue, has been a Denver landmark for 107 years.

During the early morning hours, it caught fire.

The good news -- or at least the it-could-have-been-worse info? No one was injured in the blaze. At this point, though, crews are still assessing the extent of the damage to the structure and trying to determine what caused the blaze.

Photos and video below.

According to 9News, firefighting crews arrived just after 3 a.m. this morning.
