Pick-A-Part Fire

     BIG FLATS - [WENY]     Firefighters called to a junk yard in Big Flats this evening, multiple vehicles were on fire as crews arrived on scene.
     The Town and Country Fire Department found a pile of cars on fire at the Horseheads Pick-A- Part. Mutual aid from Elmira Heights and Horseheads were called in to battle the flames, and it took over an hour to put it out.
     Town and Country's Fire chief says they've responded to this junk yard before but not to fight a fire as big as this one.
     No one was hurt in the blaze, and the investigation into the cause is underway.
