BROOKLYN - A massive fire Wednesday engulfed a junkyard on Preston Court in East Flatbush.

The clouds of smoke pluming into the sky were visible for miles.

Firefighters at the scene say the old cars and trash piled high, along with petroleum and other chemicals, likely caused the fire.

No one was injured in the blaze.

Fire officials say they have responded to several fires in the junkyard this year.
