Firefighters arrived about 5 a.m. at the Republic Services Southern Nevada Recycling Center to find hundreds of compressed bales of recycled cardboard burning in an outdoor storage area. Galloway said the fire also damaged the building.
No injuries were reported and the cause of the Monday morning fire was not immediately known. North Las Vegas Fire Department spokesman Nino Galloway said it might have been ignited by something flammable hauled to the site in a truckload of trash. Fire crews surrounded the scene and poured steady streams of water into the burning material while a plume of smoke blanketed hillside neighborhoods.
