  • MD Paper Recycling Plant

    CATONSVILLE, Md. (AP) - Debris continued to smolder Tuesday
    after a four-alarm fire at a paper manufacturing and recycling
    business.
    More than 150 emergency workers from Baltimore and Howard
    counties responded Monday to the blaze at Simkins Industries, which
    was reported about 8:40 p.m. in a building used for paper
    recycling.
    Firefighters found flames shooting through the roof. They
    brought the blaze under control about four hours later.
    No one was injured.
    The cause of the fire was under investigation.
    Firefighters continued looking Tuesday for hot spots and doused
    stacks of paper with water to prevent the fire from rekindling,
    said Elise Armacost, a spokeswoman for the Baltimore County Fire
    Department.
    The fire destroyed the recycling building, but other parts of
    the complex were not affected, Armacost said. The fire department
    did not yet have a dollar estimate on the damage.
    Firefighters had difficulty bringing water to the scene. After
    emptying their engines of water, they began shuttling water from a
    main on Frederick Road and from the Patapsco River.
    Simkins officials worked Tuesday to try to restore power to
    their fire pumps and water pressure to a portion of a private
    hydrant system, Armacost said.
