Multiple crews battled a structure fire in Bangor Friday night.

We're told the fire broke out just after 6 at AIM Recycling.

Upon arrival, officials said there was fire showing from the garage door and the roof.

According to Bangor Assistant Fire Chief Anthony Riitano, they relied heavily on surrounding communities to help with water supply.

We're told fire ripped through AIM'S environmental building side, where they take the gas and fluids out of the vehicles, which may explain the explosions coming from the building.

Anthony Rittano, Bangor Assistant Fire Chief said, "When we started hearing the explosions, I had everybody back away. There was a lot of tanks where they store the oil and gas in very close to the building and propane tanks so we concentrated our water when we first arrived to keep those things cool cause they were starting to vent."

We're told nobody was inside the building at the time of the fire.

No injuries were reported.

The State Fire Marshal's Office will be in to investigate a cause on Monday.
