Firefighters fight massive blaze at Taunton auto auction – Boston News, Weather, Sports

TAUNTON, MASS. (WHDH) – Firefighters are battling a massive blaze that has consumed at least two dozen cars in Taunton.

SKY7 HD flew over the IAA auction scene on Myricks Street around 6:30 p.m., where crews were seen pouring water over the spreading flames.

Tow trucks are in the area to keep the remaining cars away from the fire. At least one car exploded and sent sparks high into the air.

Firefighters say the fight was made more difficult by the lack of hydrants near the land which is located in a remote area of ​​the city.

“It’s difficult to get the trucks there because the vehicles are close together,” Chief Bradshaw said. “We appreciate the help of our mutual aid partners.

There is no word on what started the fire.

No injuries were reported.
