Fire reported at west Laredo recycling business

Just days after a fire burned in Nuevo Laredo at a recycling plant, the same is now happening across the border in Laredo.

A fire was reported early Friday at a recycling business in the 5300 block of Santa Maria Avenue, according to Laredo police.

Santa Maria is temporarily closed from Mann to Calton roads due to the working fire.

“Please avoid the area so that the Laredo Fire Department can work the fire event. Expect delays,” LPD said in a statement.

The fire department recommended the public to find alternative routes for the morning commute.

“We are currently battling a large warehouse fire that has produced road closures. The road closure is on Santa Maria Street,” LFD said in a statement.

This story is developing.
