TAMPA — Fire did about $10,000 in damage to a Tampa warehouse that shreds old newspaper for insulation early Wednesday.
Firefighters responded to Green Fiber, 3701 E Columbus Drive, about 12:15 a.m. after someone called 911 about smoke coming from the warehouse.
Fire crews forced their way into the building, which was locked for the night, and brought the fire under control within about 30 minutes, according to Tampa Fire Rescue.
No one was injured.
Investigators said the fire accidentally ignited when a piece of hot metal became trapped inside a bundle of shredded papers during the manufacturing process.
The business might be able to reopen Wednesday, officials said.
