80-100 cars burned in auto parts junkyard fire

Toledo, OH (13abc action news) - The Toledo fire and rescue department spent hours battling a massive car fire at an auto parts business.

The fire happened overnight at A& D Auto Parts and Repair on North Detroit near Alexis.

A call of a fire came in around 12:30 Monday morning and massive fireballs could be seen from the Alexis Road overpass.

The owner of the auto parts business and the junkyard says anywhere from 80 to 100 cars caught fire.

Fire fighters with the Toledo fire and rescue department were on the scene for more than four hours fighting the fire.

No one was hurt and a cause is unknown, but the owner of the business says this isn't the first time they've been targeted.

All of the vehicles were being prepped for scrap and no longer had tires or gas tanks.

The business owner says once daybreak hits they will have a better idea of the loss.
