FORT MYERS, Fla. — Firefighters were called to a fire at A & D Scrap Materials in Fort Myers on Tuesday.
Several crews responded to an outside fire call to 3066 Cranford Avenue around 12:45 p.m.
This is southwest of Hanson Street and Evan Avenue in Fort Myers.
Heavy smoke and flames could be seen near the piles of cardboard, trash, and other materials on Tuesday afternoon.
Wednesday morning a handful of crews were still on the scene working to keep the fire from spreading to the big propane tanks.
The Battalion Chief says they are not spraying the area and piles right now in hopes of getting dump trucks in to haul away some of the materials that could fuel the fire.
He says they are using millions of gallons on this fire and hauling out the materials could take about a week.
Nobody was hurt and the fire is under investigation.
