Museum officials say a fire is blazing through The Museum of Danish Resistance in Copenhagen, destroying large parts of the building.

They said Sunday that no one has been injured in the fire and firefighters and staff that rushed to the scene managed to save the majority of artifacts.

The fire started in the museum cafe early Sunday and quickly spread to the exhibition hall. The cause is not yet known.

The museum exhibits objects related to the Danish resistance to the German occupation during World War II.
