Firefighters in Marshalltown spent around seven hours battling a fire in the middle of a 6-acre junkyard. Gusty winds, dry grass, brush, and a large pile of combustibles made things difficult, the Marshalltown Fire Department said in a release.
Fire officials say it started due to workers using cutting torches on metal near dry grass and brush during high winds.
Eight communities and 30 firefighters spent their day knocking out the blaze.
Luckily, no one was hurt during the fire and no buildings were exposed during the seven hour fight.
Albion, Clemens, Gilman, Green Mountain, Laurel, LeGrand, Melbourne, State Center, and Beaman Fire Departments assisted on scene.
