REIDSVILLE, N.C. -- Reidsville fire crews battled a fire Tuesday morning at a recycling center.
The fire started from a pile of combustible material at Greer Recycling. The pile was 40 feet high and 75 feet wide.
Crews battled flames and the cold temperature. Firefighters said the extreme cold created equipment problems as water lines and nozzles began to freeze.
The fire department says it took several hours to control the fire.
The recycling center, located on Watlington Industrial Drive, offers services including demolition and scrap removal among others.
