HAVRE — A weekend fire destroyed an agricultural equipment business in north-central Montana.

Big Equipment Co. owner Ron Harmon says that while the business west of Havre is a total loss after the Christmas Eve fire, it is insured and he plans to rebuild. The business employs 32 people.

The fire started at about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Harmon tells the Great Falls Tribune the fire destroyed the 38,000-square-foot facility along with a combine and several tractors.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
