Firefighters closed an Iron County road Sunday to battle a fire at a recycling plant.
The firefighters had to shut down State Road 143 in Parowan on Sunday afternoon to pull hoses across the road, according to the Utah Highway Patrol. UHP and the Utah Department of Transportation reported the closure on Twitter about 12:45 p.m.
The building housing the Stone Castle Recycling plant was not on fire, but "crates filled with televisions, and computer screens in the yard" were, according to St. George News.
"As of 1:15 p.m. the fire seemed contained, [witness Aaron Hall] said, and there was no threat to his business, approximately 50 yards away from the fire," the news site added.
The Salt Lake Tribune will update this story are more information is available.
