SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Elder Creek Road in South Sacramento has been re-opened after a fire at a recycling center east of Florin shut down the road for nearly two hours Tuesday morning.
A large pile of recycling materials caught fire at the plant the Sacramento Fire Department said in a Twitter post. No structures were damaged.
The fire caused a shut down of all lanes of Elder Creek Road at South Watt Avenue and Turner Road. Drivers were being diverted as crews worked to extinguish the blaze.
The cause of the fire has not yet been determined and there has been no report of injuries.
Just after 10:30 a.m., crews with Metro Fire of Sacramento reported that fire was nearly knocked down. Crews will remain on scene for at least another hour to monitor hot spots.
