It appears that someone saw smoke and flames coming out of the ground in an area of the dump, and called 911. At least three fire service vehicles and approximately eight firemen attended the scene, and quickly took control of the situation.

The area was wet down and a machine was used to upturn debris to allow firefighters to access hot spots below the surface. We will update with official information as able.

        please, saving the airport – you make me laugh. The airport was not in danger of burning down or even been touched by the flames
