Belcher's Auto Ranch Fire

CHAPEL HILL (KYTX) - Update - One man is taken to the hospital, after an abandoned wrecking yard goes up in flames in Chapel Hill.

 It happened just after 5 p.m. off of FM 850 at Belcher's Auto Ranch.

Several fire departments were called out to the scene.

No one was on the property when the structure went up in flames, but the owner's son was taken to the hospital.

"He was attempting to get things out of the structure to salvage them before they caught on fire and he overexerted himself. So he was transported to the hospital just to be checked out make sure he was ok," said Smith County Fire Marshal, Jim Seaton.

The fire is under control but crews are keeping an eye on several hot spots.
