Firefighters used foam to smother a fire at a recycling facility in Merrifield early Sunday morning.
The blaze broke out around 1:00 am at the Waste Management transfer station in the 2800 block of Dorr Avenue. Two alarms were sounded and units from Fairfax City and Arlington helped to bring the fire under control.
It was the second fire at a recycling facility in the county in February. A fire at the Covanta Waste-to-Energy facility in Lorton, which began February 2, took 12 days to extinguish.
The cause of Sunday’s fire has not yet been announced.
