Recycling Plant Catches Fire in London

And just like that, the carbon emissions saved from recycling (if any) at this plant go up in smoke:

LONDON — Authorities say a recycling plant has caught fire in east London. A fire brigade spokeswoman says the building is “100 percent alight.”

British police identified the blaze as an industrial fire but gave no further details Saturday. Sky News television reported explosions and a large column of smoke.

A spokeswoman for London’s ambulance service says there are no immediate reports of any casualties.
