Phoenix fire: 6-alarm fire at recycling yard requires more than 200 firefighters to combat flames

More than 200 firefighters were battling a fire Saturday at a Phoenix recycling yard that drew the largest response in the history of the city's fire department, officials said.

Crews stayed overnight to quell the massive 6-alarm fire, which began in the early afternoon and required additional assistance from 10 agencies, the department said.

"Firefighters are getting great knockdown on the fire," the fire department said Saturday evening. "Residual hotspots are being extinguished while ladder companies are still operating from an elevated position."

A tire shop, a lumber company and a recycling center were among nearby businesses destroyed in the fire, CNN affiliate KPHO reports. The fire closed local roads, and officials asked people to stay away from the area.
