Scrap pile catches fire for 2nd time at same facility in one week

The St. Paul Fire Department responded to an early morning blaze Saturday at the same recycling center that caught fire Tuesday.

At 5:30 a.m. Saturday, firefighters responded to AMG Resources on the 1300 block of Red Rock Road for a pile of recycling material — mostly consisting of old appliances — that had caught fire. Crews extinguished the fire by 7 a.m. No injuries were reported and the building didn’t sustain damage this time. The department said the fire is presumed to be accidental.

Tuesday, a scrap pile of different material caught fire and the facility sustained damage.

Both fires are under investigation.

Deputy Chief Roy Mokosso confirmed to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that they are tracking the number of times the station has responded to incidents at AMG Resources and is investigating the entity as a whole.
