Fire Breaks Out at Scrap Metal Yard in Delaware

July 8, 2011

Authorities say a scrap metal yard near Wilmington has caught fire for the second time in three weeks.

The fire began about 3 p.m. Wednesday at the American Scrap Company on New Castle Avenue, and spread to a nearby building on the property.

Deputy Fire Chief Mark Willis says no one was injured in the fire, and that it was accidental. He says the fire was brought under control an hour and a half after it started.

The scrap yard was also the site of a fire on June 21.
