Chesapeake Va.- Firefighters were called to a fire at TFC Recycling in the 1900 block of Diamond Hill Rd. at 2:22 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Crews arrived 5 minutes later and found heavy smoke coming from the one-story warehouse. The fire was under control at 2:36 p.m.

No injuries were reported and the fire appears to have started because of sparks from a nearby machine that fell onto recyclable paper products.

The warehouse has moderate heat and smoke damage.
