HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - It was a chaotic few minutes for the crew at Barry's U Pull It Auto Parts Thursday afternoon. Employees were working in the salvage yard around 3:30 cutting catalytic converters out of cars. Suddenly a spark hit a fuel reservoir and ignited a fire.
Harrison County fire trucks rushed to the Firetower Road property. So did an Air Force rescue team. Its foam was used to help contain the fire before it spread to nearby fuel tanks.
Investigators tell WLOX News nobody was hurt.
