Emergency crews in Greenville are working around the clock to put out a fire at a local industrial park. Greenville Fire Chief Ruben Brown said they got a call about a piece of equipment that caught fire around 2:45 yesterday afternoon at 'Omnisource Greenville' located in the 2600 Block of Harbor Front Road.  Chief Brown said employees tried putting out the blaze with an extinguisher but it spread to a large pile of cars that stands at least four stories high.  Chief Brown tells us he believes it'll take days to fully put out the fire because there's so much material to burn like carpet, foam, rubber and vehicle frames'.  Omnisource is a company that recycles, stores, sells and purchases metals.
