The Fire Prevention Bureau is now talking to the owners to figure out how to stop this from happening again.

"They are investigating but it is a junkyard so it is very hard to determine in large pile of scrap what actually started it so finding that out will probably be very difficult at this point," said Pvt. Sterling Rahe with Toledo Fire & Rescue.
