The Niagara Falls Fire Department is working a massive fire that broke out at an industrial recycling yard.

Firefighters responded to the the scene on College Avenue near Highland Avenue just before 11 p.m. Monday.

They tell 7 Eyewitness News it began in an area where large stacks of cardboard were being stored and they worried it may spread to the nearby areas where wood chips and tires are being stored. 

Crews have not determined how it started. 

We've reached out to the Niagara Falls Fire Chief for more information, but he has yet to respond.
