Firefighters have knocked down a four-alarm blaze at a wrecking yard near Rogers and Weston roads.

At least 18 trucks were called to the scene on Hyde Avenue just after 4 a.m. on Friday.

The fire was brought under control before a large oil tank and vehicles parked on the site caused further damage.

No injuries have been reported, but neighbouring homes and buildings have been evacuated as a precaution.

Firefighters remained on the scene dousing hot spots.
