FRUITPORT TWP. — Investigators are trying to figure out what caused a fire at Muskegon Castings Corp. late Tuesday night.

The fire started in the ceiling of the plant at about 10:30 p.m., but the flames burned well into Wednesday morning.

Workers at the scene said about 40 people were inside when the fire broke out. All of them made it out safely.

There are unconfirmed reports of an explosion. Workers said they didn't hear anything, but did see flames spreading across the ceiling.

The building is likely a total loss.
