Emergency crews continue to keep an eye on the fire at the I-27 Recycling Center, and are also monitoring the smoke coming off those burning shingles.
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has monitoring equipment in the middle of the debris, picking up information every hour that lets them know what chemicals are going up into the air. Even though preliminary results show no need for concern, officials still ask that folks avoid working around that smoke as much as possible.
"If you're out in your backyard starting you bbq pit and got your grill going it's smoking, you wouldn't be working in that. Same thing here," says Randy Ammons with TCEQ.
Ammons says his crews will monitor the smoke 24/7 until the fire is completely out.
