Firefighters finally put out flames at Liberty Tire Recycling

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Firefighters finally put out the flames at Liberty Tire and Recycling Tuesday afternoon.

The company had to hire a contractor to put more manpower on the flames. We're told they smothered the pile with dirt, and will continue to do so while searching for hot spots.

The company has been out of compliance with state tire storage laws for the last six months.

Monday flames broke out with a state inspector on site.

It's still unclear what caused the fire.

The company is working with state regulators trying to control the pollution from two days of flames.
