The fire was reported out at 12:41 p.m.
An official with Cohen said fires sometimes start because of the combustibles recycled, but typically they’re extinguished by the fire suppression unit.
Adam Dumes, senior vice-president with Cohen, said sparks sometimes start fires in the recycling business because of the materials in some of the items.
He said no Cohen employees were injured in the fire. He said the “health and safety” of the employees is always “No. 1 priority.”
