Spectacular Fire Erupts At Lodi Plastics Plant

LODI (CBS SF) – A massive plastics fire sent flames soaring into the sky early Wednesday at a Lodi manufacturing plant, authorities said.

The blaze at Epic Plastics erupted around 3:30 a.m. and quickly grew as flames were fueled by bales of crushed plastics.

All six of Lodi's fire engines were on the scene and firefighters from Stockton were also involved in the attempt to contain the blaze at the plant located just off Highway 99.

A cause of the blaze had yet to be determined.
