CIUDAD JUAREZ, MEXICO -- A metal recycler was found burning about a block away from the Juarez airport in South Ciudad Juarez, creating a smoke plume reaching several yards in height, according to Channel 44.

The fire burned in front of the military regiment in South Ciudad Juarez, near Barranco Azul Street on the Juan Gabriel road axis next to industrial parks.

According to Civil Protection, the fire started around 5 a.m. on Tuesday, however, it was difficult to see the plume of smoke due to the cloudy weather.

The fire department and other authorities worked to get the fire under control. There have been no reported injuries so far.

  1. Recycling venues seem to have more than their share of fires. Juarez and El Paso have had several and Albuquerque had one last year. My granddaughter is a Albuquerque firefighter and sent me pictures.
