The building appears to be Master Craft, a foundry on the 100 block of Mallory Avenue -- a small industrial area bordered by single-family homes.
The fire was called in just before 10 p.m. Firefighters were working to extinguish the blaze into the morning hours. There were no reports of anyone hurt in the blaze.
Master Cast makes permanent molds and aluminum castings, from bolts to stainless steel tubing, according to its website.
Master Cast originated as Lindgren Foundry Co. in 1920, owned by Erick Lindgren and his two sons, according to the Batavia Historical Society website.
The original Lindgren building burned to the ground the same year the business opened. The family rebuilt the following year and ran the business until 1964, according to the historical society.
