Decatur Fire and Rescue responded this morning to a fire involving a pile of scrap metal at SA Recycling, said Chief Tony Grande.
The business is located at 1300 Alabama 20 and was formerly known as Tennessee Valley Recycling. SA Recycling purchased the business in 2017.
"It started right around 7:25 this morning," Grande said. “We don’t know how it started.”
Five fire engines, including an engine from the training center, and a ladder truck were at the scene, according to Dusty Cheatham, battalion chief with Decatur Fire and Rescue, who was at the scene.
The scrap metal was adjacent to a building at the facility, but the fire was contained to the pile, Cheatham said.
"We're just putting out hot spots," he said at 9:30 this morning.
