LEBANON, Ind. — Several fire crews were on scene at a towing business in Lebanon, Indiana, where several cars caught fire Wednesday night.
Boone County Dispatch confirmed that around 8:45 p.m., a vehicle caught on fire in the salvage yard of Zore’s Towing. They said that the flames eventually spread to other vehicles at the business.
Lebanon Fire Department had crews on scene battling the fire. They had to use excavators to separate vehicle piles.
Zores workers told fire personnel that cars and scrap had been stacked on top of each other prior to closing. Their belief was that the fire was started by a spark in one of the vehicles’ electrical ignition system.
At this time, foul play is not suspected.
The Boone County Health Department and Boone County Emergency Management also responded to the scene to monitor for potential hazards in the water runoff.
