Oakland firefighters are cleaning up hotspots after a very smoky fire at a steel yard Friday morning.

Fire investigators are still trying to figure out how a massive scrap metal heap caught fire just before 8 a.m.

Crews have now spent hours dousing the heap with water.

The fire created a lot of smoke but nobody was injured and air quality officials say the smoke is not toxic.
