A fire wrecked Java Monkey on Nov. 11, and the shop will likely be out of commission for four months.

The owners provided Decaturish photos of the damage inside the building. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The coffee shop has been a Decatur staple for over 25 years. The fire torched the wine bar and patio area.

Officials have not confirmed if they are looking into whether the fire was intentionally started. In a Facebook post, Java Monkey implied that someone intentionally starting the fire is something on the investigators’ radar. Decatur fire investigators are receiving assistance from DeKalb County Fire and Rescue and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).

The fire damaged nearby businesses Tres Jolie, Noodle and Fresh to Order.

Here are photos Java Monkey provided of the interior of the coffee shop after the fire:
