(KMOV.com) – Firefighters said nobody was injured after a fire broke out an ammunition plant in the Metro East Sunday.

Firefighters said the blaze broke at a maintenance building on the site of Winchester Ammunition plant in East Alton just before 3:30 a.m. Authorities said propane cylinders exploded, but those cylinders were isolated from more dangerous materials.

Firefighters said the blaze was large enough that seven departments were called to help put it out.
