BILLINGS, Mont. — Billings fire officials say no one was hurt in a blaze at a bronze-casting business.

The Billings Gazette reports a fire broke out at Billings Bronze, Inc. on Sunday night.

Billings Fire Battalion Chief Matt Hoppel says no one was inside of the building at the time of the fire.

Hoppel says after a majority of the flames were put out by early Monday morning, the structure appeared to be a total loss.

Since it was an industry business, Hoppel says it’s likely that there were flammable materials inside.

The cause of the fire was unknown as of Sunday night.
