Five RV's and one cement truck were burned Saturday in a multiple-car fire at a wrecking yard in Chula Vista, the Chula Vista Fire Department said.

According to CVFD Battalion Chief Chris Manroe, fire officials responded to reports of a trailer on fire at a wrecking yard located on the 1500 block of West Frontage Rd. around 4 p.m.

Firefighters found three trailers on fire once they arrived at the scene, Manroe said. Because of an initial structure threat, the fire was upgraded to a commercial industrial response.

No firefighters or civilians were injured during the incident, Manroe said.

According to Manroe, numerous people occupy the lot and the City of Chula Vista is working on cleaning up the area.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
