Thick smoke could be seen coming from a new tasting room at a Montgomery County winery Friday morning.

The fire broke out before daybreak at the Karamoor Estate Vineyard & Winery along Skippack Pike in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania.

Firefighters could be seen pouring water onto flames as smoke came from a building. The roof of the building was mostly gone by 7 a.m.

It is unclear at this point how the fire started.

The winery dates back to 2006. The winery posted to its Facebook page gratefulness that no one was hurt.

"We are so fortunate no one was injured and it appears the damage stayed within the walls of the new tasting room walls and close perimeter," the post read.

They noted that "Our Karamoor Estate bottle, still stands tall and strong."
