That Huge Plume of Smoke in West Philly is Coming from a Junkyard

A massive plume of smoke rising from University City in West Philadelphia this afternoon had thousands of people fearing a major blaze and praying there were no victims.

A closer look shows that the fire is roaring at a junkyard, where there are no people or animals in danger.

It’s at Automated Waste Solutions at 1620 South 49th Street.
