NORTH BALTIMORE - A massive blaze that consumed a recycling business in the village late Thursday and early this morning is being considered suspicious.
Eleven area fire departments responded to the fire at HPJ Industries, 510 W. Broadway.
North Baltimore Police Chief Allan Baer said this morning the fire was reported shortly after 11 p.m.
In addition to North Baltimore fire personnel, crews responded from Bowling Green, Findlay, Hoytville, Cygnet, McComb, Bloomdale, Allen Township, Weston, Milton Center and Van Buren. SEE MORE PHOTOS
"It was huge," said Baer, noting that flames from the fire shot an estimated 100 feet into the air. "It was significant."
"It could be seen in Cygnet. It could be seen, the glow, from McComb." There were also reports that the blaze could be seen from Bowling Green.
Baer said that no one was in the business at the time, and no firefighters or other individuals were injured.
CSX reportedly held train traffic during the incident in an effort to allow first responders to travel easily in the area.
While no dollar amount could be placed on the damage, Baer termed it "serious" and noted that pallets located outside the plant were a total loss. Online images of the business show that large numbers of stacked pallets and containers were situated near the building.

NORTHWOOD - About 40 workers will be without jobs this fall after Advance Engineering consolidates its Northwest Ohio plant to a Michigan location.
The company was not required under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act to notify the state of the anticipated job loss, but it did so anyway in a letter to the Office of Workforce Development on July 10.
The message, signed by Kevin Jordan, senior vice president and chief financial officer, indicates that two stamping plants, the Northwood facility and another in Michigan, will be consolidated to an existing plant in Canton, Michigan.
Employee separations are scheduled for Sept. 1, with the Northwood plant closing at the end of October.

LIME CITY - Trustees granted FedEx a 15-year tax abatement Wednesday as the company works on a $42 million expansion of its Perrysburg Township facility.
The company will receive a 100-percent tax abatement for the planned expansion in the Ampoint Industrial Park. The abatement was approved 2-0 by trustees Gary Britten and Craig LaHote, with Bob Mack abstaining.
The project will collectively add 22 full-time jobs and another 145 part-time positions, said Jack Hilbert of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, the legal firm representing FedEx, which opened the $90 million distribution center in 2009.
Hilbert added that FedEx's current $13.7 million payroll will be increased by a total of more than $1.8 million after the 93,500-square-foot expansion.
