Fire burning at Wisconsin recycling plant

NORWAY, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin authorities say three dozen fire departments are battling a blaze at a recycling plant in Racine County.

Wind Point Fire Chief Rob Robins says two firefighters have been treated for heat exhaustion. The Journal Times reports no one from the recycling plant in the town of Norway has been injured.

Authorities say firefighters responded to the Johns Disposal site at about 1 p.m. Sunday. WDJT -TV reports that the fire is burning thousands of a pounds of bailed trash and officials expect it will be days before the blaze is put out.
