A cloud of black smoke was visible from the intersection of U.S. Routes 30 and 15 about 8:45 a.m, Monday. Within minutes, it filled the entire sky.

Emergency crews from every corner of Adams and neighboring counties quickly descended upon the blaze at Consolidated Scrap Resources, 2230 York Road, Straban Township. Route 30 (York Road) was shut down in both directions and train traffic on a nearby railway was halted.
