Grand forks fire crews snuffed out a blaze at the landfill last night.   the fire was first reported shortly after eight p-m.   battalion chief rob corbett says the fire was about a square block in size.  He says crews used water and dirt to smother the fire.   Corbett says they don’t plan to spend a lot of time looking for a cause.

He says the biggest concern with a landfill fire is where is it’s going not what is it consuming.   There were no injuries or damage to equipment.
