INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Authorities are investigating after a large fire at an Amtrak maintenance facility in Beech Grove.

Indianapolis and Beech Grove fire crews were called to Garstang Street around 12:30 a.m. Sunday and found two buildings used to house paint and cleaning supplies on fire.

Officials say there was no working fire hydrant at the facility, and firefighters were not able to get water on the fire until about 1 a.m. The fire was under control by 2 a.m.

One of the buildings collapsed, and the other building partially collapsed with a full collapse imminent, according to the Indianapolis Fire Department.

No injuries were reported.
