Smoke Spews Into Sky as Fire Rips Through NJ Recycling Plant

A fire at a recycling plant in New Jersey sent thick plumes of smoke billowing into the air Friday morning.

The blaze at Plainfield Metal Recycling broke out at about 10 a.m., but the flames were quickly doused.

Video from the scene shows thick clouds of smoke pouring from the building. Chopper 4 footage captured from after the flames were extinguished showed heavy damage.

It's not clear if anyone was hurt in the blaze.
