Adell Plastics went up in flames Tuesday and its employees are wondering what will happen next.

Crews worked well into the night Tuesday and will likely continue into Wednesday to control the massive fire that broke out Tuesday afternoon at Adell Plastics, Inc.

The situation is being called an "extended operation," meaning there's no definite timeline for when the fire will be contained completely.

Hot spots and an unstable building are big worries and those that work there are also worried about their future.

"I was in the front part of the building and I noticed an orange glow, Angela Glorioso, an Adell Plastics employee, said.

Little did Glorioso know that glow was a massive fire.

"when I stepped to the side, I saw a little bit of flames and I started to scream fire,” she said.

Over 200 firefighters worked the scene Tuesday afternoon but the work is far from over.

"The building is so unsafe that we will not be able to get inside to do any interior fire fighting everything will have to be done from the outside," Lt. Paul Massarelli from the Baltimore County fire department said.

The building was full of employees and possibly flammable materials when the fire started.

“I ran out the door and i was calling 911 as I ran out the door i went to let the people in the front office know that the building was on fire" Glorioso said.

The next question is what will happen to those who work at the company.

"I’m a little scared and a little nervous," Glorioso said. "I don't know what I'm going to do, but I'm just happy nobody's hurt that's the main thing because it was pretty big."
