BREAKING: Fire at Bay Area Recycling for Charities Plant in Kaleva

“Manistee Central Fire, your ladder truck’s being requested to Kaleva for a structure fire, fully engulfed.”

Crews are working to put out a fire at the Bay Area Recycling for Charities Plant off Industrial Drive in Kaleva.

However, details on the fire are still limited.

Right now we do know the call about the fire came around 3:30 Tuesday afternoon.

While people were inside at the time, we’re told everyone was able to get out.

The owner Andy Gale tells us this site is used for recycling mattresses, refrigerators and electronics.

There’s no word on any threat of potentially toxic fumes from this fire.

That’s one of the things we are working to find out.
