CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) – Fire and rescue responded to calls of a fire at a salvage yard at 1524 Independence Ave. yesterday afternoon at approximately 5:44 p.m.

Authorities believe the fire may have been started because hot metal was left too close to combustible materials.

Crews reportedly stayed on scene for several hours putting out the fire.
