The Cherokee Fire and Rescue responded to a fire at Filter Recycling, Inc. located at 5167 Old River Road. The fire was reported about 12:45 a.m. and fire crews quickly responded.
Fire crews from five departments around Cherokee County were called out to battle the overnight blaze at the plant that recycles oil filters from cars.
Fire officials think the fire broke out in the facility's office and spread from there.
Nobody was reported hurt from the blaze, but there were several explosions at the recycling plant.
Doug Gochenour of Cherokee Fire and Rescue stated, "There's been explosions because there is oil, diesel fuel, jet fuel and propane tanks and everything inside of this building. So it's been kind of interesting."
Crews from Aurelia, Cleghorn, Meriden and Larabee were called in to help the Cherokee fire department battle the blaze.
The cause of the blaze has yet to be determine but the State Fire Marshal was expected to be on the scene sometime on Tuesday to see if there was anything left to help in the investigation.
The fire crews were still on the scene some twelve hours later.
