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.
