HAUBSTADT, Ind. (AP) — Fire burned through a manufacturing business in a small southwestern Indiana town, causing a building to collapse.

Officials say the fire in the Gibson County town of Haubstadt was reported about 2 a.m. Tuesday. No injuries were reported as the blaze spread between buildings at West Side Automation.

Haubstadt Fire Chief Eric Adamson tells WFIE-TV that crews from several fire departments helped battle the blaze, which spread after flames got into the eaves of the first building.

The cause of the fire in the town about 15 miles north of Evansville wasn’t immediately determined.
