Representatives from the CMC Recycling Company say a loud noise heard late Wednesday night was a propane tank being inadvertently processed.

"Just before midnight on February 27th, during normal processing of shreddable scrap material, a small propane tank was inadvertently processed. The mill is designed to withstand these types of events and is equipped with a fire suppression system. All employees are safe and no equipment was damaged. Normal operations have continued since the event occurred. CMC Recycling is dedicated to processing metals in a safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly manner. We will review our procedures for screening incoming material and are committed to mitigating these types of incidents in the future.

Commercial Metals Company is located near Marshall and North 166th E. Ave. CMC and its subsidiaries recycle, manufacture and market steel and metal products and related materials.
