Firefighters battled black smoke billowing into the skyline and explosions while trying to contain a multi-car fire in Dayton Monday evening. Fire officials are still investigating how it started, and said there were some issues that came up during their incident. It happened around the 4 p.m. rush hour at A&B Iron and Metal on Washington Street. According to fire officials, workers were inside and saw the fire ignite. "Where at in the parking lot is it?" dispatchers asked. "You won't be able to miss it, it's billowing black smoke," the 911 caller responded. "As you've seen from the plume of smoke, it was going mostly straight up in the air," Dayton District Fire Chief Adam Landis said. "When the first crews got here they realized they had about six cars on fire," he continued. "Inside a recycling station, large pile of recyclables."
