Firefighters from several stations responded to a major fire at the Cash for Trash vehicle scrap yard on Flewellyn Road.

Several cars caught fire at the yard, located just east of Munster Road.  Flewellyn remained closed from Munster to Conley as of about 5:00pm. No injuries have been reported.

Ottawa fire received a call just before noon today and Station 81 from Stittsville was the first to respond.  A large plume of smoke could be seen from Stittsville and Kanata and there were still fire vehicles responding nearly an hour later.  Police and paramedics are also on the scene.

CBC Ottawa reported that workers were baling scrap metal when a spark started a very small fire that quickly grew out of control.

Ottawa Fire described the fire as a “large scrap vehicle fire”.  Cash for Trash buys and disposes of old and unwanted vehicles.

Ottawa Public Health is advising residents who are bothered by the smoke to stay indoors and close windows and doors.
