GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Firefighters with the Parker Fire Department were called to battle a large fire at a scrap yard Tuesday morning.

Dispatchers said the fire was at Adam’s Recycling on Old Easley Highway.

Viewers sent photos and video of flames and large plumes of black smoke rising from the scrap yard.

As of 10:30 a.m. Fire Marshal Jason Nurmi with Parker Fire said the fire was 95 percent contained. He said firefighters were able to put a containment line around the fire to isolate it to one area in the scrap yard and were working to fully extinguish it.

Nurmi said no one was hurt in the fire and that there was no danger to the community.

The materials will require several hours to cool before investigators can safely begin assessing what caused the fire, Nurmi said. He said the business is expecting a high-dollar loss due to the fire.

The fire was determined to be accidental, according to the Parker Fire Department.
