VIDEO: Firefighters are battling a large fire which broke out Wednesday afternoon at a Cherokee County vehicle recycling facility. The fire happened at Carguts just off Highway 5 near US-29 just east of Blacksburg. No injuries have been reported in the fire but one firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion. It is not known what caused the fire. Crews are also checking air quality in the area. Ten different fire agencies have responded to the scene with water tankers also being brought in to help. The Town of Blacksburg said water customers may experience low or no water pressure due to the large amount of water being used to extinguish the fire.
