SMITH COUNTY (KYTX) - Fire crews fought a large fire at the TKO salvage yard on County Road 2767 & FM 850 in Smith County.

We're told a fire from a burn barrel at a home spread to a nearby salvage yard.  Ten cars were burned.  One firefighter was treated on scene when he became overheated. 

Fire investigators say the person who was burning the barrel fire was not at home at the time.  That person may be cited for not watching the burn.
