Crews battle fire at Lebanon scrap yard

In a social media post, the fire department said multiple tankers were operating at a scrap yard at Zore's on Frontage Road.

BOONE COUNTY, Ind. — Multiple fire crews battled a scrap yard fire Wednesday at Zores Towing in Lebanon, authorities said.

Around 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, fire crews responded to the location in the 2100 block of Frontage Road on a report of a building fire. There, they located a large fire in a salvage yard but determined no structures were involved.

Crews kept the fire from spreading to additional areas of the salvage yard, and tankers for nearby departments were brought in to help bring the fire under control around 11:15 p.m., the Lebanon Fire Department said.

The Boone County Health Department and Boone County Emergency Management responded to the scene to monitor for any potential hazards in water runoff.

There was no estimate of the monetary damage of the fire as of early Thursday morning.

In a statement, the fire department said Zores personnel explained a spark from an electrical system in one of the cars in the scrap yard likely ignited the fire. No foul play is expected at this time.

No injuries were reported from the fire.
