A Parma firefighter suffered a leg injury early Tuesday morning while assisting other firefighters in battling a blaze at a recycling plant in Brooklyn Heights. We’re told the injury is not serious.
Authorities tell 3News it took approximately 90 minutes to extinguish the flames in the 50 block of East Schaaf Road because getting water down to the fire’s location was difficult. Firefighters say the first call came in around 5:30 a.m.
Fire officials are reporting extensive damage, but say the structure was unoccupied at the time the fire began. No additional details were immediately available, but we will update this story once more information is released.
