An Omaha recycling center goes up in flames.

It happened at the International Paper Company located at 16th and Read Street early Monday morning.

From the outside there is no visible damage and fire crews were able to contain the damage inside. Channel Six has learned all the workers did make it out of the building just fine and no injuries were reported.

Officials believe the fire started on a conveyer belt that feeds a recycling machine.
