Firefighters battle blaze at recycling plant in Summerville, GA

Posted: Updated:
CHATTOOGA COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -  A fire broke out at the Berryton Recycling plant Wednesday evening just before 7:00 pm.

At least six companies responded to the fire, which is now under control.

The blaze was contained to the northwest corner of the grounds. 

Staff at the recycling plant aided firefighters by using machinery to move the burning piles. 

Firefighters will be monitoring the area overnight, checking for any hot spots. 

A Chattooga EMA official tells Channel 3 this fire is nothing like the fire that happened back in 2012.

That blaze burned for more than 24 hours with at least 15 fire companies working non-stop to contain it.
