MONONGAHELA, Pa. — A fire at a Washington County scrap yard sent black plumes of smoke into the air Friday morning.
The fire was reported just after 10 a.m. at Monongahela Iron and Metal Company on Main Street in Monongahela.
The fire was contained to a garbage container; however, there were tires in the dumpster that burned causing the thick smoke.
A Hazmat team was at the scrap yard to ensure no pollutants got into the river.
