Crews were called to Calgary Metal Recycling in the 3400 block of Ogden Road shortly before 4 a.m.

No one was injured and the fire is now out.

In 2012, crews battled another fire at this facility for two weeks. In that case, a heap of scraps known as "auto fluff" started burning.

The company pleaded guilty to some Alberta Fire Code offences and was ordered to pay just over $17,000 in fines, said fire department spokeswoman Carol Henke.

Smoke from the fire in 2012 can be seen from a pile of scrap metal. The fire smouldered for weeks, causing air quality concerns. (CBC)
