CADDO MILLS, Texas (AP) - Emergency officials say as many as five airplanes have been destroyed in a hangar fire at a small airport in North Texas.

The Greenville Herald-Banner reports fire officials say no one was hurt in Wednesday's blaze at Caddo Mills Municipal Airport, about 35 miles (56.32 kilometers) northeast of Dallas. Authorities are trying to determine what sparked the fire, which was brought under control after about two hours.

Hunt County Fire Marshal Richard Hill says four or five planes were destroyed and others were damaged. He didn't immediately provide further details.

Messages left for Hill and with the airport weren't immediately returned Wednesday.

Caddo Mills is a town of about 1,600.
