A bale of recyclables caught on fire at The Recycling Foundation in Lafayette. We're told firefighters have it under control. Less than two weeks ago, firefighters put out a fire there. Lafayette Fire Dept. spokesperson Alton Trahan says today's fire is not unusual, because recyclables are packed tightly, and there are still smoldering, hot embers from the first fire. Windy conditions attributed to today's fire.
