GLASGOW, SCOTLAND -- More than 60 firefighters were called to a blaze at Glasgow's WRC Recycling.
The fire, which was described by one witness as "absolutely massive," closed nearby train tracks.
The fire, which started late on Jan. 21, was spotted by a passing train driver. Local residents were evacuated.
Speaking to local media, WRC owner Robert Capper said: "Thankfully, it looks like the fire brigade managed to contain the blaze to our yard. It's just big bundles of plastic burning, but for us that is money going up in smoke."
