Officials said there were two fixed-wing planes and two helicopters in the hangar at the time of the fire.

"The fire rapidly progressed to the point that an interior attack was not possible," the fire department said in a Facebook post. "Crews mounted a defensive attack to prevent the fire from spreading to adjacent structures."

Parts of the hangar began to collapse due to the blaze, and crews remained on scene handling hot spots as of 7 a.m. Monday.
