City of Atlanta Firefighters have been in battle since 4 a.m. Monday morning trying to extinguish a blaze in two large recycling warehouses large warehouse fire.
Fire crews arrived to one of the buildings off James P. Brawley Drive to find large amounts of fire, but limited access to the structure.
"Of course, there's toxins with the amount of smoke we've got here," Battalion Chief Kevin Roberts told the AJC. "I'm sure there are toxins in there, I just don't know what they are. Luckily, most of [the smoke] is going up and away and we don't have any of our crews operating in the immediate part of it."
Firefighters are currently attempting to exterminate flames from outside the building in caution of the structure collapsing from the inside.
