A single-engine airplane, similar to the one that caught fire in Spanish Fork.

Police say a small plane was destroyed after it caught on fire while it was inside a hanger at a Spanish Fork airport.

Spanish Fork Police Lt. Brandon Anderson says the single-engine plane caught fire in a hanger at the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport late Saturday.

He says after the fire, the plane was practically reduced to its wings.

He estimates the fire caused $300,000 worth of damage.

According to a preliminary police report, a battery charger connected to the plane appears to be the cause of the fire.

Anderson says the fire remains under investigation.
