3rd fire breaks out at RockTenn recycling factory

Posted: Updated:

Another fire broke out at the RockTenn recycling factory Tuesday morning.

This was the third time in 24 hours that crews had to put out a fire at the factory on 19th Avenue North.

All three fires were in different locations inside the building. On Tuesday morning, some recycling material caught fire. On Monday afternoon, the fire started in a conveyor belt, and about two hours later, an ember from the first fire caught a pallet on fire.

Officials say all three fires were small and did not cause a lot of damage.

Firefighters say none of the fires are suspicious.

The fire investigator will be called out to make sure everything is being operated in the correct way.
