Large fire reported at recycling facility in west Dallas

Multiple Dallas Fire-Rescue units are working a large fire at the CMC Recycling facility in the 1700 block of N. Westmoreland Road.

Due to the proximity of the plant to Interstate 30, the flames and heavy black smoke is visible from the highway.

Firefighters are arriving on scene now and report a large scrap metal pile on fire. One building on the grounds is at risk of catching on fire.

Expect a lot of activity at the scene for the next several hours.
