A fire that started around 1 Wednesday afternoon has consumed at least 60 tires in London, according to fire crews.

They said the tires are all at a heavy equipment dealership on the Eastern Hal Rogers Parkway, meaning all of the tires are large in size.

Officials said some of the flames have been extinguished.

Investigators are unable to tell if the fire is suspicious at this point due to an excessive amount of black smoke at the site.

ABC 36 has a crew on scene and will have more on this story at 5 and 6pm.
