Fires at landfill sites are not uncommon but, they are always cause for
concern, considering the volume of potential fuel.
Fortunately, City fire crews made quick work of a fire at the Lethbridge
landfill site Thursday morning and had it contained by 10:00. The facility was
re-opened by 11:00.

The city's waste and recycling specialist says it isn't known what sparked
the fire. However, Steve Rozee reminds those who use the site to make sure the
contents of fire pits and burning barrels are completely extinguished before the
the remains are taken to the landfill.
