PHOENIX -- An overnight fire at a scrap-metal yard kept Phoenix Fire crews busy for several hours early Wednesday.

There were no injuries.

Fire Capt. Ruben Saavedra said the blaze started around 1:30 a.m. near 35st Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road. A 30-foot-high stack of car parts, appliances and other debris caught fire, sending flames and dark smoke into the sky.

Investigators don't know know how the fire started yet.
