A large salvage yard fire is sending thick black smoke over Wilson County tonight. 

Lebanon police, fire, and Wilson County Emergency Management are all at the scene of a tire fire at the junkyard on Cainsville Road.  

Tire fires are hard to put out, and they generate heavy black smoke. This one may burn for hours.  

The smoke is visible across Wilson County. Evening commuters couldn’t miss seeing it and made a lot of calls to police and fire as they headed home to Wilson County.
