Fire broke out this morning at a recycling company on Christian Lane in Berlin.

A police officer said Recycling/Automated Material Company handles everything from glass bottles to cardboard boxes and employees work overnight, so several people were at work when the fire broke out.

The employees smelled smoke, then the alarms started going off and they had to be evacuated.

The fire is out, but firefighters have to check a lot of equipment inside the facility and it is not clear when employees will be allowed back inside.

The cause of the fire is not known, but it appears to be mechanical.
