An abandoned building burst into flames Tuesday night in Oliver, sending black plumes of smoke into the air.

There are no reports of any injuries at this time, but a witnesses says she heard an explosion around the same time the fire started.

It happened on Island Way Road around 8 p.m. and the Oliver Fire Department had the fire out within the hour.

The building is said to have been very old and went up quickly; it was completely destroyed.

We'll have more details as they become available.
