Fire Update at West Minot Business

Minot, N.D. - Minot - Fire crews are still working to contain a fire that broke out at Earth Recycling Incorporated.

Several fire departments in the Minot area have responded to that large fire. The recycling yard is located on 4th Avenue West.

The call came in at about 11:20 Thursday morning with report that several palettes filled with recycling materials were aflame and quickly traveling to the building.

The biggest task is to clear the debri in order to put a stop to the progression that's been going on for quite some time now. But, the amount of materials stacked up makes it difficult to access the flames.

All employees at Earth Recycling were able to exit the building safely, there are no injuries reported.

Minot Rural Fire Dept. Chief Rex Weltikol says, "Right now, everything is looking pretty good as far as the situation. The wind is in our favor so we're going okay there, it's just going to be a time consuming thing because it's so massive and there is a little bit of wind pushing the fire through the scene."
