Firefighters monitoring hot spots at a Lakeland mulch making facility

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

LAKELAND, Fla. — Crews are monitoring hot spots from a fire that broke out a Polk County wood recycling facility on Saturday.

Firefighters first were called just before 11 p.m. Saturday to Southern Softwoods, located at 2425 Lasso Lane.

There's plenty of debris here to fuel a fire because stuff like yard waste and raw wood are brought here and converted to mulch.

No injuries have been reported. 

The cause of the fire still is under investigation.

Editor's Note: Polk County Fire Rescue has clarified the fire is burning across the street from the originally reported Pallet Recycle.
