Hamilton police respond to fire where ‘pop-up’ scrap metal business was shut down in April

Hamilton police made a return visit to Wentworth Street North with firefighters early Wednesday morning to put out a blaze at a location they say was once an unauthorized scrap metal business.

Investigators say emergency crews responded to a “working fire” at 468 Wentworth St. N. after 1 a.m., extinguishing a blaze in some cargo containers.

Paramedics assessed three people at the scene during the fire, with none of the individuals requiring medical aid, according to detectives.

The location was previously targeted by police on April 16 in a raid involving city bylaw officers who shut down an allegedly unauthorized scrap metal business.
