Crews responded to Sal B Scrap Metal and Recycling around 3 o’clock Monday afternoon. Highway 64 was closed for about 11 hours.

“We rolled up on the scene within a few minutes and noticed heavy fire involvement, very large amounts of black smoke. The fire was threatening nearby piles of abandoned vehicles with intact batteries, fuel tanks that had not been stripped before,” said Town of Peshtigo Fire Chief Mike Folgert.
