— Officials are investigating the cause of a large mulch fire Saturday at Jerry G. Williams and Sons lumber yard.

The yard is located at 524 Brogden Road.

The pile of mulch was about as tall as a three story building. Crews needed to move around the wood chips in order to reach the flames deep within the pile.

No injuries were reported, according to Smithfield Fire Chief Patrick Harris.
