Fire Breaks Out at Business in Lincoln Heights

A fire broke out at an auto-dismantling yard in Lincoln Heights on Tuesday, May 27, 2014.

A large plume of smoke drifted above Lincoln Heights on Tuesday night as firefighters worked to contain a blaze at a business where explosions were reported.

It took 97 firefighters about an hour to knock down the flames, officials said.
