Firefighters battling soil recycling facility blaze in Plainville



PLAINVILLE — Firefighters from several towns responded to a blaze Tuesday at a North Washington Street soil treatment and recycling facility. 

The fire was reported at Clean Earth of Connecticut, formerly Phoenix Soil, 58 N. Washington St. at around 2:30 p.m. Firefighters remained on scene for several hours before bringing the fire under control.

The company operates “a state-of-the-art thermal treatment facility processing non-hazardous petroleum-contaminated soils,” according to its website.

Heavy smoke and flames could be seen rising from a smokestack at the facility.

Fire officials had yet to issue a statement on the incident or any injuries as of Tuesday evening.
