A fire tore through 14 hangar bays and destroyed several GA airplanes on Monday night at Grove Field in Camas, Washington, near the border with Portland, Oregon.

Officials said no one was hurt when the fire broke out in the airport's E Hangar, but damage to airplanes was expected to reach into the millions of dollars.

Firefighters responded and had the flames under control in about an hour, preventing the blaze from spreading to other hangars.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Some of the damage can be seen in the video below.
