An early Tuesday morning fire at a Springfield metal recycler is under investigation as crews work to knock out hot spots and inspect the damage.
Springfield fire fighters responded to an extra alarm fire just before sunrise and extinguished the flames using bucket trucks. Springfield Fire Chief Ken Fustin says there was an explosion inside the sorting center at the recycler but the fire has been extinguished.
Fustin says there is no indication this is a hazardous material situation. No other buildings appear to be damaged. No injuries reported.
