Mansfield firefighters were alerted to the third fire at the Miller Recycling Plant in two years Tuesday night.
Mansfield Fire Chief Neal Boldrighini attributed the cause of the fire to the low ignition temperature of the materials in the paper recycling plant.
The fire reportedly started at around 10:30 p.m. when one of the company’s forklifts had an electrical issue.
No injuries were reported during the incident.
Companies from Norton, Sharon, Foxborough, North Attleboro and Plainville assisted in the blaze.
