Crews were called to Concord Turnpike around 11 after witnesses spotted smoke and flames near the railroad tracks.
A large pile of scrap lumber had caught fire, sending flames twenty feet into the air.
It took firefighters about ten minutes to bring the blaze under control.
They also were concerned about preventing it from spreading to three nearby buildings.
The pile of lumber belonged to a company that recycles and resells old building products.
Authorities aren't sure how the fire started.

Sounds ordinary enough--
But utility and wildlife officials set a trap for the birds four months ago, and they've yet to be caught.
Every time the trap is set, the birds manage to figure out a way to get around it.
It's been their nest for the last four years.
Officials are trying to evict the parrots, because they say it's not safe.
A zoo in Wyoming has agreed to take the birds when--or IF-- they're ever caught.
