ARDMORE, OK - Thick, black smoke filled the sky over Ardmore this afternoon from a fire authorities call suspicious.

That smoke came from a fire off O Street and Sam Noble Parkway.
Firefighters say a pile of tires that stretched for several hundred yards caught fire around 3 p.m.

Crews attempted to separate the burning tires from the others to better contain the flames. Ardmore Fire Department Shift Commander Jeff Wood says they think the fire may have been set.

"The thing about it with the intense heat and everything that we had in the summer for this fire to start now under relatively cooler weather, it's kind of suspicious," Wood said.

The fire is now contained and the investigation is underway. No one was hurt, and no structures were threatened.
