Fire at Durham recycling yard

DURHAM, North Carolina (WTVD) -- The Durham Fire Department put out a fire in a large pile of junk cars at Foss metal recycling on Riddle Road Wednesday morning.

The call came in just before 9 a.m.

Workers used heavy equipment to pull the pile apart so firefighters could get water on the flames.

Officials said no one was hurt and there was no damage to buildings.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
