    DES MOINES (ABC News) - KCCI in Des Moines reports that fire crews are on the scene of a large fire at 1920 NE Broadway and 46th Ave. in Saylor Township, near I-80 and Hwy 65.

    Explosions, flames and lots of black smoke have been seen coming from the Barton Solvents building. Fire crews from all over the Des Moines area are being called to the scene including Ankeny and Altoona. Crews as far away as Grimes are being put on standby.
