Fire causes extensive damage at Pennsylvania recycler

November 21/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- A fire broke out at Palmer Plastics Inc's plastics recycling plant in Palmer Township, PA, US. No injuries were recorded, as per Plasticsnews.

The fire originated from the plastics extruder that spread up through the extruder's exhaust system into the plant's roof assembly. The fire was originally in a machine that breaks down plastic into smaller plastic pellets. But by the time firefighters were able to extinguish the flames in the machine, the fire had crept up to the warehouse roof.

No one was injured at the warehouse, a plastic recycling facility, and William Penn Highway was shut down until about 9:40 p.m.

As MRC informed earlier, four people have been killed and three seriously injured in a fire at an oil and gas processing plant on the outskirts of Mumbai run by Indias Oil and Natural Gas Corp. The Uran plant processes nearly half of the crude oil that ONGC sells to refineries and 12% of its natural gas sales. The plant is also a major supplier of cooking gas.
