Scrap yard full of cars catches fire in south Phoenix

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - A burning pile of debris forces Phoenix firefighters to get out the big ladder and hose down the flames from above.

The fire is at a business at 29th Avenue and Broadway Road was very active throughout the night as they doused the hot spots.

Fire-fighters got here quickly and started blanketing the fire with foam.

The fire happened at a business called 'We Buy Scrap' and it's basically a junkyard for cars, some stacked 12 cars high.

Firefighters had to move them to get to the root of the fire.

"There's a lot of fire hidden, we have crane trying to pinpoint some of the hotspots,” said Captain John Jacobs.

There are no injuries reported and no word yet on a cause.
