SHADY HILLS, Fla. — Pasco County firefighters battled a late night fire at a junkyard in the 16100 block of Platinum Drive in Shady Hills, authorities said.

Pasco County Fire Rescue responded to call at a commercial business shortly after midnight, Pasco County Fire Rescue spokesman Corey Dierdorff said.

When they arrived, firefighters spotted a large stack of junk cars on fire.

The blaze was contained to the pile of vehicles.

It took firefighters two hours to bring the fire under control. During that time, Shady Hills Road was closed at Platinum Drive. The road has since reopened.

No injuries were reported.

No word yet on the cause of the blaze.
