Two workers injured in fire at recycling plant near Tampa

TAMPA — Two recycling company employees were seriously burned after a piece of equipment caught fire Friday afternoon.

Firefighters rushed to Creative Recycling Solutions at 8108 Krauss Blvd. around 1 p.m., according to Hillsborough County Fire Rescue.

Firefighters found the flames contained to a large air purifier called a scrubber but smoke was pouring out of the 100-foot by 400-foot warehouse.

The blaze was under control quickly and paramedics took the workers to Tampa General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Fire Rescue reported.

The facility is east of Tampa near E Columbus Drive and U.S. 301.

No damage estimate was available.

    When Elizabeth and David Samuelson started planning the house they built six years ago on Snell Isle, the couple envisioned a West Indies look with masonry stucco walls and a metal hip roof. As they moved forward, it evolved into something they describe as coastal contemporary.

An infinity pool blends seamlessly from the terrace right into Tampa Bay. Doors surrounding the family room open and are then out of sight enabling the interior to seem more outside than inside. David designed and made a chandelier with hundreds of dangling, clear fish that hangs over the foyer.
