SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- A fire has destroyed a nut processing and shipping facility north of Salem.

An incident commander with the Marion County Fire District says the fire was reported about 2 a.m. Sunday. Multiple callers reported that the structure fully engulfed in flames.

No injuries were reported. An estimated 400,000 pounds of nuts were in a dryer and were reported destroyed in the blaze.

Fire officials are investigating the cause. They believe the processing facility's main building is a total loss.
