From an August 24, 2019, Snohomish County Fire District 7 news release.

Emergency dispatchers received multiple reports of black smoke coming from DTG Enterprises, a commercial recycling plant located in 24100 block of Snohomish-Woodinville Road on Saturday, August 24, 2019.

Engine 73 arrived and extended a hose line into the structure and was able to extinguish and contain the fire to the area of origin.

The building has a fire sprinkler system which operated and helped to keep the fire from spreading more rapidly.

An adult occupant was outside the business upon arrival who reported that there was nobody inside the structure. Firefighters searched the structure and confirmed it was clear of occupants.

One firefighter suffered an ankle injury while setting up hose lines outside the structure.

The cause of the fire was attributed to a malfunction with process machinery. The amount of damage has not yet been determined.
