    Scrapyard on fire!!

    Like the title says:

    Denver Scrap Metal Recycling was on fire today. It's the yard in the thread I posted that was looking to open a 24 hour yard.

    No injuries so that's at good thing. See links below, hopefully they work:

    Apparently they had a fire in July of 2016. I didn't start part time recycling until March of this year.

    That place is also a food bank on Saturdays.

    I was coming down from a well pump installation in the foothills and man that was some serious smoke. Seems like about every 6-9 months something is a blazing in that area.
