Longview Seeks Plastics Plant Closing

The city of Longview is seeking court action to halt the re-opening of an area plastics recycler that burned to the ground last year. Fire officials say the blaze that destroyed Southwest Plastics last September endangered the lives of firefighters and cost the city around $200,000.

The city is asking a Longview judge to stop the recent re-opened business operating until they address all fire safety codes.
