NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of Gap (GPS) - Get Gap, Inc. (GPS) Report  were down in late afternoon trading on Tuesday as the company's 990,000 square-foot distribution facility in Fishkill, NY was ravaged by flames Monday night, displacing at least 100 employees. 

All employees were able to evacuate the building safely and no injuries were reported. The fire, which erupted around 11 p.m., required response from more than 20 fire departments in three counties, according to USA Today. 

"All employees who were onsite at the time have been confirmed safe and accounted for," a Gap spokeswoman said in a statement. "Safety is our top priority and we are working closely with local emergency agencies that are responding to this incident."

Gap announced in 2014 that it would invest $96 million in the Fishkill facility and add 1,200 jobs over the next five years, according to NBC 4 New York. The center opened in 2000. 

The company reported second quarter results earlier this month that beat analysts expectations, but provided light guidance for 2016. The company sees adjusted earnings per share between $1.87 and $1.92 per share, while analysts are looking for $1.96 per share.
