The black smoke blossoming upward southeast of downtown Little Rock Tuesday evening came from a fire that broke out at the Goldman Recycling Center at 1701 E. 17th St.
Arkansas Times photographer Brian Chilson reported that he heard a couple of loud bangs coming from the area where the fire is burning.
Trucks in the parking lot of the Golden Eagle of Arkansas facility at 1900 E. 15th St. were heavily damaged, he said.
Here are some pictures from the scene Tuesday evening.
Channel 4 reported that fire crews were still on the scene Wednesday morning.
Fire crews are still working to put out a massive fire at Goldman Recycling in East Little Rock. It started around 5:00 last night which means firefighters have been working almost 12 hours to put out the flames. I’ll have more coming up on @KARK4News pic.twitter.com/cwfb60e6U9
