Fire At Recycling Center

Firefighters were able to contain a blaze at Padnos Recycling Center in Benton Harbor on Monday. It broke out in the afternoon hours when a crane was moving around some scrapped vehicles. Staff tell us it looked like one of them must have had some gas still in its lines. Firefighters responded quickly and got the fire under control. It was contained to the scrap yard and did not spread to any buildings. Firefighters remained on scene in the early evening hours just to make sure the blaze would not reignite.
