Authorities stated they left 3 apartment in the location Thursday afternoon as the blaze rapidly spread out through cars that were stacked one on top of the other for demolition. At least 50 cars and trucks set to be scrapped were involved.
Firemens stated the blaze was contained and they were working to reduce it. The cause wasn’t instantly understood.
The big blaze brought traffic to a grinding halt. A city official, Pinuccia Montanari, said the fire showed the threats of having demolition lawns inside the city limits.
Smoke is clearing. However does smoke settle? Large dark cloud of smoke behind me now. Most likely from the same fire? pic.twitter.com/5txUHExjOG
