Earlier Saturday afternoon, HDPS asked residents near a recycling center in Holland to stay indoors while crews battled a fire that broke out Saturday afternoon.

Around 1 p.m., HDPS said crews were at the Louis Padnos Iron & Metal Co. in the area of Pine Avenue and 7th Street after a fire broke out.

The cause of the fire was unknown as of Saturday afternoon.
