Fire Consumes Pallets, Plastics at Recycling Site

FRANKFORT, Ind. (AP) _ A central Indiana fire chief says a fire that produced thick clouds of black smoke consumed about a half-acre of wooden pallets and plastics stored outdoors at a recycling company.
Frankfort Fire Chief John Kirby tells the Journal & Courier it took fire crews more than two hours Tuesday to get the blaze under control.
Nearby residents had been warned to stay indoors to avoid the fire's dense smoke. Kirby says state environmental regulators were taking air samples and ground samples at the scene.
He says the site is owned by Brittain & Sons Recycling Inc. and those owners weren't present when firefighters arrived.
