Hayward firefighters were battling a one-alarm fire at a scrap metal plant at 30104 Industrial Parkway.
Although the investigation is ongoing, police said it appears the fire at Sims Metal Management in December was intentionally set.
A Redwood City metal recycling facility that caught fire on Sunday received a public nuisance violation for a similar incident, according to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
