A dramatic fire that created billowing smoke that could be seen for miles away is still burning at an old mill building in Maine's Mechanic Falls.

More than 100 firefighters responded Sunday to the fire at a building that was filled with vehicles and spare parts. The blaze was first reported at 1 p.m. and the building was completely engulfed by the time firefighters arrived a half-hour later.

Several businesses were located inside the old mill.

Fire officials say there are currently no reports of any injuries.

The cause of the fire is currently undetermined, but firefighters will be on scene around the clock for several days until things are finally under control.
