A fire at a commercial facility has kept Birmingham fire crews busy Tuesday.

The blaze was reported about 3 p.m. at Steel City Recycling, located at 2020 Vanderbilt Road.

Black smoke could been seen from a great distance away, as apparently old, crushed cars and debris were burning.

Authorities say 40 or 50 junk cars ignited while being shredded. A spark may have ignited gasoline fumes.
