Shooting, Fireworks Starts Washington Fire

June 26, 2012

Burning tires are still smoldering Monday morning at a wrecking yard in Belfair, Wash., that caught fire overnight.

KING-TV says the fire was started at Belfair Truck and Auto Wrecking by someone firing a gun. It hit a storage bin where fireworks was stored. The fireworks exploded in a blast that was heard at a nearby fire station. The Mason County fire district also says there were a number of calls about the blast.

The blast set fire to some car parts and a stack of tires, which are very difficult to extinguish.

Sheriff’s deputies questioned two suspects.
