The National Response Team (NRT) from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Missouri Division of Fire Safety’s Office of the State Fire Marshal have completed the on-scene investigation into the cause of a fire at a paper and recycling business on State Highway Y in Jackson. The fire was reported at approximately 10:00 p.m. on Oct. 3rd. Investigators have ruled the cause of the fire, at this time, to be “undetermined,” which does not mean that a fire investigation is closed. If information is developed in the future to indicate or warrant further investigation, this finding can be changed. Missouri Plastics is a plastics and paper recycling company, and the building is approximately 100,000 square feet and is considered a total loss, estimated at $7 Million. No one was present in the building and there are no reported injuries from the fire.
