NAGS HEAD, N.C. (WAVY) – A Nags Head pub posted on social media that an espresso machine was responsible for a fire that caused extensive damage to the business Monday morning.

Officials say the call came in at 6 a.m. for a heavy smoke coming from behind Waveriders Coffee Deli Pub on Croatan Highway. 

The fire was marked under control a short time later and there were no injuries reported. 

A Facebook post from Waveriders said there was no one in the building when their espresso machine somehow caught fire. They said the entire interior has smoke, ash and water damage.

They posted a picture of the burned espresso machine.

Firefighters from Kill Devil Hills, Colington, and Dare County assisted with the fire.
