KALISPELL — Firefighters responded to a fire at the address for Pacific Steel & Recycling near Kalispell early Tuesday.

Evergreen Fire Marshall Ben Covington says crews were called to the scene at 2:45 a.m. and arrived to find several vehicles on fire.

Three nearby homes were evacuated because of the fire, which is just off of U.S. Highway 2 east of town.

Montclair Drive between U.S. Highway 2 the railroad tracks will remain closed through the morning due to hose-lines in the road.
