Cutting Torch Blamed for Zalev Scrap Yard Fire

Damage is pegged at $20,000 after a fire at the Zalev scrap yard property.

Windsor fire officials are saying Wednesday's blaze was caused by a cutting torch which ignited some close by vegetation.

Due to high winds, the fire then spread damaging one building on the site.

Crews were called to the property just west of Howard Ave. on Grand Marais Rd. E. at around 2pm Wednesday for a report of several small fires.

Nobody was injured in the incident.
