Tampa, Florida -- Tampa Fire Rescue crews are working to mop up a fire at a recycling business that broke out Sunday afternoon.
Firefighters found a large trash fire at the RockTenn Corporation on N. 26th Street burning dangerously close to an on-site facility warehouse and they immediately requested a 2nd alarm.
Approximately 60 firefighters were on scene working to control the flames. Tampa Fire Rescue says the fire originated in a pile of recyclables in a secured area of the facility.
