LANDOVER, Md. (WJZ) — Firefighters responded to an industrial recycling center just south of Cheverly Saturday night for a report of a fire.

When they arrived in the 5600 block of Columbia Park Road, smoke was showing.

The fire then extended through the roof of the building.

Firefighters had to be evacuated from the interior of the building that partially collapsed after 75 percent of the building was on fire.

Prince George’s County Fire continued their presence on the scene of the fire through Sunday and will continue into Monday.

The estimated fire loss is at $8 million with a majority of the loss being machinery.

Officials say one firefighter had minor injuries.
