PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A 3-alarm junkyard fire that broke out in Philadelphia on Wednesday has been placed under control.
Fire officials tweeted that the massive blaze was placed under control just before 5 p.m.
Flames erupted from a commercial building on the 2200 block of Fraley Street in the Wissinoming neighborhood of the city just before 3 p.m.
Action News has learned the building involved in the fire is Martin's Recycling Company.
Firefighters say that due to train tracks and buildings surrounding the junkyard, the fire was difficult to manage. Officials say they attacked the flames from the roof. They also used hoses around the building's perimeter.
The Philadelphia Department of Public Health previously warned residents to avoid the area or stay indoors due to the large amounts of smoke, but that order was lifted.
According to officials on the scene, no one was injured as a result of the blaze.
Despite the large amounts of smoke, SEPTA and Amtrak officials say there will be no delays in their schedules.
There is no word yet on what may have started the blaze.
