KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Drivers heading home after a long week of work saw an unusual sight - billowing black smoke coming from a scrap yard fire.

The fire could be seen on Interstate 435 near East Winner Road.

Chopper5 flew over the scene and showed a giant pile of barrels that were ablaze.

Shortly after 5 p.m., fire crews started using a large crane-line system to begin putting the fire out.
