Thick smoke took up a portion of the Minneapolis skyline Tuesday morning – caused by a fire at a metal recycling plant on the city's north side.
Here's video from Twitter user @realkub.
It was reported a little before 10:30 a.m., and crews had the "bulk" of it knocked down in about 45 minutes. There was still a fire inside the building however, and heavy smoke remained a problem, and more than two hours later crews were still working to extinguish everything.
Things were deemed "under control" just before 1 p.m.
Here's some more from people on Twitter.
If Northern Metal Recycling sounds familiar ...
If you feel like you've heard of Northern Metal Recycling before, it might be because the company made news over the summer when it was dinged for possible air pollution issues.
In August, a judge ordered Northern Metal to shut down its metal shredding plant after the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency began investigating high levels of pollutants in the air near the plant.
That metal shredder is at a different location than the recycling center where the fire occurred Tuesday. The shredder is about a mile north on Pacific Street.
The agency had said in the spring it was worried about levels of airborne lead, chromium, cobalt and nickel in that area of North Minneapolis.
A 2015 report by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency found air pollution contributed to 2,000 deaths in the Twin Cities in a single year.
