Steel scrap fire coats Youngstown in black smoke

Published: Thu, April 10, 2014 @ 3:03 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Billowing black smoke is coming from Midwest Steel & Alloy, a steel scrap yard at 200 Division St.

Fire department crews are staging at the area and fire trucks are being sent in one at a time, with water. The smoke is visible for a great distance over the north and west sides.

The Vindicator has a crew on the scene. Check back for details.

Man, I left my laundry on the line. Now I'm going to have to start all over again.

Glad it was only a fire ....I was afraid the black cloud over Ytown was growing again.

Just went through that area and the smoke/stench is really irritating; how do we know it is not toxic?

black smoke, maybe crime will go down in the hood until the fire and smoke go out and blow out of the area. If it is toxic I am sure the ambulance chasers are contacting all the non producers to file a lawsuit against this company. Company files bankruptcy and the workers lose their jobs. Typical Mahoning Valley crooks in the court system.

Probably some old tires burning, they produce a nice black cloud of smoke.

Kind of like Ytown of old when smoke from the mills covered everything but the area was prosperous.
