There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is still being investigated.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE: Firefighters are containing a blaze that broke out on the roof of a recycling plant in Eagan Sunday morning.

Eagan firefighters said they responded to the blaze at Gopher Resource near Highway 149 and Yankee Doodle Road just before 5 a.m.

Officials say the fire is contained and is not spreading to any product inside the building.

No injuries have been reported at this time.

Fire crews say they classified it as a five-alarm fire because the flames are burning in between two rooftops, making containment more labor-intensive.

Officials say a hazmat team is at the scene to monitor air quality as a precaution, but there is no current threat to the public.

Highway 149 was closed earlier Sunday morning, but has since reopened.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
