RV burns at East Toledo junkyard

A recreational vehicle burned last night at an East Toledo junkyard, causing smoke that reached the downtown area.

The vehicle was destroyed, fire officials said.

The fire at 210 First St., at the junkyard that belongs to East Side Auto Parts, 214 First, was reported about 8:35 p.m., firefighters said.

Fire crews forced their way into the junkyard and extinguished the blaze within an hour before it could spread beyond the RV, firefighters said.

The cause of the fire was unknown, and a damage estimate was unavailable last night.
