Fire Crews Battle Blaze at Recycling Yard in Pomona

Firefighters extinguished a blaze at a recycling yard in Pomona Friday afternoon.

The fire broke out at 1980 S. Reservoir St. around 3:30 p.m. The address appears to match a business called Master Recycling, Inc.

Heavy black smoke and flames were seen from assorted junk burning outside, and the fire’s proximity to a structure was a concern for firefighters.

The fire was up against one wall of the building, which did sustain damage.

But fire sprinklers helped limit the damage to the structure, fire officials said.

Officials declared the flames extinguished after about two hours, authorities said. More than 80 firefighters took part in the effort.
