There's some concern about air quality in the area. EPA workers were on the scene monitoring the area. It's not as bad as it was earlier, but there are still questions about the air quality.
Piles of rubber tires, ready to be recycled, were fuel for the fire. The roof caved in and the building was destroyed. Five people inside at the time got out safely.
Now, first responders are worried about neighbors. Families within a mile radius were evacuated from their homes. The wind was pretty calm, but it did blow smoke out pretty far and could be seen from miles away.
There's still a lot of work to do on scene. The fire chief expects crews will stay there until the fire is completely out.
