No injuries after fire erupts in Madison recycling plant

Posted on June 1, 2016 11:05 am under Fires and Explosions

A June 1 article of the Wisconsin State Journal revealed that an explosion and fire at a Madison metal recycling factory erupted in a scrap metal pile.

Although at least 10 employees were inside the facility at the time of the incident, no one suffered injuries in the explosion and fire at “All Metals Recycling” that took place around 4:00 p.m. on 1802 S. Park Street. An employee stated that the company was unsure how the explosion began, but they noticed it after hearing firecracker-like sounds. The pile of scrap steel where the explosion took place was an estimated three stories tall, company manager A.J. Vedvig stated. Madison fire crews used aerial ladders and a crane in order to contain the fire.
