Employees were evacuated from the building and smoke was rolling as Plymouth Fire Chief Rod Miller arrived on the scene. Flames were showing inside the building but were knocked down by firefighters in a matter of minutes.
CJ Poly is a full service plastic recycling company of post industrial plastic. They have been operating in Plymouth since 2006.
Chief Miller said, “We were really lucky. Something, possibly static caught a couple of pallets of poly bead on fire.” He said it was a small fire and the interior fire suppression system did not activate.
No injuries were reported at the plant or by the fire department.
Crews were on the scene for about an hour with much of that time being used to clear the smoke from the building.
