Explosion at cartridge recycling warehouse

Explosion at cartridge recycling warehouse

May 29, 2018

Production was stopped for a day following the flash fire.

Emergency services were called to the warehouses of Australia-based toner cartridge recycling company Close The Loop last week, following an explosion.

The conflagration happened at the company’s premises in Hebron, Kentucky, after a spark from a piece of metal caused a flash fire, as well as a “big booming noise”, according to Fox19.

The flames were contained by the site’s back-up safety systems, although neighbours were said to be “startled.”

“Sounded probably a lot worse than it was, with the black smoke coming out, I don’t doubt it looked a lot worse than it was,” said Close The Loop’s Rob Perry-Jones. “Safety systems on the equipment and internally worked wonderfully, everybody was out quickly. Nobody injured – not even a scratch.”

The warehouse itself suffered minimal damage.
