Firefighters are in the middle of a long battle with a major fire at a recycling plant in Clarksburg Wednesday morning, according to authorities.

The Montgomery County Fire Department said a two-alarm fire broke out at a warehouse at the C&D Recovery recycling plant at 24120 Frederick Road. Officials said there are currently no injuries but that they expect to be fighting the blaze "for some time."

At one point, the fire department said efforts to put the fire out were being hampered by limited water. They later said that the fire has left the building in danger of collapsing and firefighters cannot go inside.

Frederick Road remains closed in both directions from Clarksburg Road to Old Hundred Road.

The cause of the fire has not been released at this time.
