BILLINGS -

A large fire erupts at Paint All, just west of MetraPark, early Thursday morning. The fire was reported around 1 AM.

"(The call) came in as Pacific Recycling, but it was actually a paint shop that was right next to Pacific Recycling. It was well involved when the person called it in. There was flames reaching about 40 feet high. We will have crews there all night as they investigate and try to find out what caused the fire," said Boyd Vopel of the Billings Fire Department.

One of our viewers, Lindsey Kay, sent in a video of the enormous flames. Firefighters responded with four engines and a truck to knock out the inferno. Police blocked off 4th Ave. North and partially closed 6th Ave. North while fire crews worked on the blaze.

Billings Fire Department says no injuries were reported. The total cost of damage was $500,000.
