Gaza, IA (KICD) — Firefighters responded to a call of burning tires.

Around 9:15 Tuesday night the Primghar fire department was called to a fire on the south edge of Gaza. Upon arrival, firefighters saw thick black smoke coming from a pile of junk tires.

The chief says the fire department saw lots of thick, black smoke as they approached the scene. He says they used water and foam to fight the fire. The fire department called for a water tanker from the Calumet Fire Department. He says they used about 1300 gallons of water in addition to the foam that was used to fight the fire

Fire chief Gary Lansink said that there were no injuries to people, pets, or livestock, but said the tires were heavily damaged, but there was no damage to propane tanks sitting nearby the pile.

The cause of the fire is thought to be burning embers from an earlier fire near by, and crews were on scene for about 45 minutes.
