COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency is helping a property owner figure out how to get rid of debris left after a massive fire at an industrial site on the south side of Columbus.

Agency spokeswoman Heather Lauer tells The Columbus Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1RCh6im) they’re determining whether any of the debris is hazardous. That could delay the cleanup.

The owner of the recycling facility at the complex is putting together a timetable for cleaning up the site. He says a contractor has been lined up to remove the debris. Paper, plastic, cardboard and wooden pallets were stored there for recycling operations.

Investigators continue to search for the cause of the May 1 blaze. It caused about $8 million in damage.

Officials say three businesses operate at the site.
