SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) It took 13 firefighters from Shreveport almost an hour to bring an early-morning fire at a west Shreveport salvage yard under control.
Shreveport Firefighters responded to reports of a fire at the Copart Salvage Yard in the 5200 block of Greenwood Road at 12:56 a.m. today and arrived on the scene seven minutes later.
When they arrived, SFD firefighters found 14-15 vehicles on fire. Due to the lack of fire hydrants in the area of the salvage yard, SFD contacted Caddo Parish Fire District #3 who assisted by bringing a water tanker to the scene.
One SFD firefighter was taken to the hospital as a precaution after receiving a minor injury.
The cause of this fire remains under investigation.
