Firefighters had to fight hard Wednesday afternoon to control a large fire in northwest Indiana.

Crews battled flames at the former Rieter Automotive site, 110 W. Oakley Ave., in Lowell, Indiana.

A thick black cloud of smoke could be seen for miles.

The building has been abandoned since Rieter Automotive closed last November.

Investigators are now trying to figure out how that fire started.

Ten people who were inside the building got out safely.
