Multiple fire departments are helping fight a massive fire at Stuff Recycling in Clark County. It started around 4 p.m. Saturday at the facility, which is off Lexington Road (U.S. 60), west of Winchester, near the Fayette County line. The fire continued to burn Sunday. Crews expected to work throughout the night into Monday, but say as of Sunday afternoon, it is mostly steam and smoldering metal. Fire officials are still trying to determine what started the fire, but they say the flames began in an area where there were quite a few car parts. At the height of the blaze, more than 100 firefighters were trying to put out the flames.
