GALION, OH- South Street in Galion was blocked off between Wood Street and Dawsett Avenue Sunday morning. This was due to a fire at Innovative Recycling. 

Smoldering began in a pile of shredded tires near the back of the building. Lt Rodriguez of the Galion Police Department noticed the smoke while nearby on an unrelated case.

Fortunately, no one was in the building when the tires began to smolder so no injuries have been reported. The structure itself is mostly concrete so the damage has been minimal and is mostly due to the smoke.

Authorities are uncertain at this time as to how the fire got started. 

Assisting at the scene were Galion Police Department, Galion Fire and EMS, and the American Red Cross.
