A fire erupted Tuesday at a Des Moines salvage yard, leaving a large plume of black smoke in its wake.
Des Moines firefighters said crews were called to Don's Auto & Truck Salvage at 1500 S.E. 30th St., where several vehicles caught fire. Authorities said no injuries were reported and the cause of the blaze is unknown because no employees were present when it began.
Firefighters said crews had a difficult time accessing water at the scene but were able to extinguish the flames.
