Landfill fire chokes city – hazard forces local schools to close

At least two city schools have opted to close tomorrow (Friday) after fire fighters by yesterday evening failed to quell yet another blaze at the city’s landfill site.
At 8pm this evening fire fighters were still braving rancid toxic fumes in an attempt to bring the blaze under control.
Much of Scottsville Hayfields, Lincoln Meade, Mountain Rise and Eastwood was blanketed by the billows.
More information to follow tomorrow.
