    Firefighters battled a junkyard fire in the Tacony section of Philadelphia.

    The fire started at a junkyard on the 5200 block of Unruh Street Monday around 4:20 p.m. Several fire crews as well as hazmat units responded to the scene and were able to place the flames under control at 4:50 p.m.

    No one was injured during the incident. Officials haven't revealed the cause.

    It was at least the third junkyard fire in Philadelphia this month. A fire that occurred at a junkyard near train tracks in Northeast Philadelphia back on Aug. 19 led to major delays for Amtrak, SEPTA and New Jersey Transit.
