WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky (LEX 18) - Several fire departments are responding to a fire at Eastern Kentucky Recycling in Williamsburg.

The call came in around 11:30 a.m. 

The center is located on Savoy Clear Creek Road. There are currently nine different fire departments on scene. Crews are using foam to try and put out the fire. Firefighters are working hard to ensure that they also stay safe in this heat. 

The fire was producing toxic smokes from burning aluminum and other metals.

Residents were told to stay indoors and avoid breathing the fumes, but emergency leaders say that things now appear to be okay. They were consistently taking air samples. 

We are told no evacuations are needed now. No one was injured.
