ELIOT, Maine (AP) β€” Firefighters in Maine are investigating a blaze that damaged a recycling plant.

Authorities say the fire at the Aggregate Recycling Corp. in Eliot started around 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Eliot Fire Department Chief Jay Muzeroll says more than a dozen fire companies helped to put the fire out.

Crews contained the blaze at the commercial recycling plant by 9:30 p.m. Muzeroll says crews will remain on the scene to ensure the fire doesn't start again.
