CCFD Investigating Overnight Fire

The Corpus Christi Fire Department is investigating the cause of a business fire off Highway 44. It started around one at the Commercial Metals Company Recycling Branch on Agnes and Bronco. The company grinds down scrap metal. Firefighters say a pile of debris ignited under a three-sided building. Battallion Chief Doug Matthijetz says the damage was minor but the pile was about 40-feet, so crews had to sift through it for several hours.

"It's just a matter of dividing it all out once it gets down in there," said Matthijetz. "It's a little deep seeded, so just tearing it all apart and cooling it down."

The cause of the fire is unknown. No one was hurt.
