Firefighters Battle Pennsylvania Scrap Yard Fire

Fire broke out overnight at a longtime Delaware County scrap yard in the shadow of PPL.

Luckily no one was hurt in the Friday morning blaze at Ben and Sam’s Scrap yard along Yarnell Street near W 2nd Street in Chester, Pennsylvania. The yard is near the home of the Philadelphia Union.

Firefighters called a second alarm as they battled not only flames but rough terrain at the scrap yard that has been there for around 60 years.

Flames spread to the roof of a building at the yard before firefighters got the flames under control.
