MILBANK (AP) - Fire has destroyed the Titan Machinery building in the northeastern South Dakota town of Milbank.

The blaze was reported about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Police Chief Boyd Van Voren says there were multiple explosions inside the building, and ash from the fire traveled as far as a mile. No injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined. Company officials said in a statement that they're working with their insurance company and local authorities on a damage estimate.

Titan Machinery is a dealer of agricultural and construction equipment. It's based in West Fargo, North Dakota.
