J and R Used Tire faces thousands in fines


Hoopeston – The tire recycling business that burned for days last week in Hoopeston will face more than 100-thousand dollars in fines.


The fire at J and R Used Tire Service filled the small town with smoke leaving debris through out the city. The Environmental Protection Agency says the fines would come from air and water pollution related violations.


The complaint was filed in the Vermillion County Court by the EPA. Back in February, a routine check found multiple permit violations.
