Regulators still have an eye on recycling fire near Lubbock

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - State regulators continue to monitor the fire at I-27 Recycling.  Officials from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality are continuing checking the air quality.

The latest fire started August 10th, but there have been several large fires at that business since 2002.   The TCEQ hopes to decide by Friday whether to let the current fire burn out or try to douse it.

So far, officials say they have not detected anything that could harm people or homes in that general area north of Lubbock.   Meanwhile legal proceedings between the TCEQ and owner Larry Webb have been temporarily delayed.
