Crews battling fire at Ontelaunee Township scrap yard

A fire at a scrap metal yard in Ontelaunee Township Saturday morning sent giant plumes of smoke and whiffs of burnt steel across much of central Berks County.

Fire crews were called to Royal Green Corp., a recycling business on West Huller Lane near Route 222, shortly before 6:30 a.m.

Initial reports from the scene indicated large piles of scrap metal were ablaze at the business. A portion of Route 222 near the site of fire has been closed down because of heavy smoke.

People from as far away as Wyomissing have reported smelling the smoke from the fire.

More information will be provided as it becomes available.
