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.
