A western Michigan fire official says a fire at a metal casting plant caused about $2.5 million in damage.

The blaze broke out Friday evening at Holland Alloys in Ottawa County's Holland Township.

Township fire Chief Jim Kohsel told The Holland Sentinel on Wednesday that authorities haven't yet determined what started the fire but says it isn't considered suspicious. He says cardboard, wood and plastic inside the building caused the fire to spread quickly.

The township got help from firefighters in Zeeland, Park Township and Port Sheldon Township in battling the blaze.

Kohsel says the fire caused about $1.5 million in damage to the building and about $1 million to its contents.
