BATH — Fire officials are investigating the cause of a fire at Bath Iron Works that damaged a large storage building at the shipyard.

Fire Chief Steve Hinds said portions of the two-story building at the southern end of BIW’s main yard in Bath were heavily involved in flames when firefighters arrived just after 5:15 p.m. Tuesday.

Hinds told the Bangor Daily News that the fire was extinguished in about two hours and caused thousands of dollars in damage.

No one was injured.

A crew of 13 firefighters from Bath and a brigade from Bath Iron Works used ladder trucks, tankers and a variety of other equipment to fight the fire, according to the Daily News.

“We sent everything we had,” Hinds said.
