The fire was out by 10 a.m. with crews working to douse any hot spots or flareups.

Deputy Murray Fire Marshal Pat Killian said the blaze was blamed on grinding work being done outside a metal fabrication business. Sparks from the work settled into nearby wooden pallets.

Workers initially tried to put out the flames, which sent thick black smoke into the air, with fire extinguishers and water hoses, Killian said.
