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.
