ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta fire officials are responding to a large fire just west of downtown.

An Atlanta Fire Rescue spokeswoman says the blaze Wednesday afternoon was at a Junkyard on Wells Street, about two miles west of downtown Atlanta and just south of the Atlanta University Center — which includes Morehouse College, Spelman College, Morris Brown College and Clark Atlanta University.

The fire sent plumes of thick black smoke billowing toward the downtown area.

Authorities are unsure of the cause of the fire and it was not immediately clear if any injuries were reported.
