Hayward firefighters quickly extinguished a blaze in a heap of discarded household appliances at a scrap yard Saturday afternoon.

Capt. Don Nichelson said firefighters rushed to Sims Metal Management, 30104 Industrial Parkway SW, at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday. A bunch of burning stoves, washers, dryers and so on produced a lot of smoke, he said, but the single-alarm fire was quickly surrounded and put out with no injuries or damage to any buildings.
