A fire is burning at a recycling plant or junk yard in Nogales, Mexico according to Sgt. Robert Fierros with the Nogales Police Department.
Smoke can be seen from at least 10 miles away because of gusty winds in the area.
The fire is burning on the west side of Nogales near the Mariposa Port of Entry.
