Seneca fire fighters needed just a half hour to knock out the fire at Olson’s Auto Scrap Metal Recycling Wednesday night. They were there for three hours dousing the hot spots.
Fire Chief Kett Johnson says ten area fire departments helped by shuttling water to the scene. There aren’t any fire hydrants in the immediate area.
Johnson says an electrical problem caused the fire. The main building and office were destroyed.
A person driving by the place on U.S. 6 saw the fire and reported it.
