A fire broke out in a recycling center south of Fresno on Tuesday night, and employees helped firefighters extinguish the blaze, the Fresno Fire Department said.
The fire started at 11:38 p.m. at Cedar Avenue Recycling and Transfer Station near Highway 99 and Cedar Avenue, said Hector Vasquez, a fire department spokesman.
Some debris caught fire, setting off the station’s sprinkler system, Vasquez said.
A total of 32 firefighters were on scene, but Vasquez said workers at the center helped by using heavy machinery to break up the large pile of burning debris.
