(NBC) Fire officials in Washington state say an employee at a bikini coffee stand was injured Thursday when her stand burst into flames.

Everett fire officials said a call came in around just before 5 p.m.  Thursday about a possible explosion at the Sinners and Saints coffee stand.

A young barista was inside the stand at the time and suffered burns to her body while escaping the flames.

The woman reportedly was taken to a local hospital for treatment

Investigators don't know what caused the blaze but are looking into the possibility that propane tanks used to heat the stand exploded.
