Heavy smoke billowing from a Parksville industrial site could be seen from several kilometres away Tuesday morning.

Fire crews from Errington, Parksville and Coombs were called to a blaze at the DBL Disposal Services site on Church Road.

The industrial site is home to a recycling centre, gravel mart and water truck services, according to a sign at the location.

Images from the scene show heavy, dark smoke pluming from what appears to be a scrap pile or other mound of debris.

CTV News has reached out to DBL for a comment, but so far has not been able to connect with anyone who has information about the fire.

First responders offered little detail as to the severity of the fire. Fire officials said only that three departments were on scene battling the flames.
