A large scrap pile caught fire and sent a column of black smoke into the air at a metal processing business in Salem.

Firefighters responded to Cherry City Metals on the 3100 block of Kanz Court Northeast at 9:30 a.m. Thursday.

A pile of scrap metal and other debris approximately 50 feet in diameter and 30 feet high was burning when crews arrived at the scene.
