Fire at city landfill put out

Prince George Fire Rescue crews were called out to the Foothills landfill Friday evening.

A total of 13 firefighters responded from three halls. When crews arrived, they found a fire burning on the active face of the dump approximately 300’ by 300’ in size.

Crews attacked the wind-driven fire with handlines. Contract equipment crews arrived and used on scene equipment to cover the area with thick dirt as fire crews extinguished the area.

Fire damage was estimated at $20,000 and the cause is unknown at this time.

There were no injuries to any of the fire personnel.
