January 27th, 2014
Big Spring, Tx
The landfill in Big Spring caught fire yesterday. Fire Chief Craig Ferguson says the cause of the fire is still under investigation, but was likely caused by embers or flammable chemicals dumped at the landfill. The landfill was closed on Sunday, but due to weather conditions Ferguson says itís very likely that the hot coals sat idle until the winds picked up. Both the Howard County Volunteer Fire Fighters and Big Spring Fire Department worked the blaze.
