Albany Firefighters battle landfill fire

July 10, 2007

Albany firefighters were on the scene of a fire at a landfill late Tuesday night.

Crews from four trucks battled the fire at the city's inert landfill on Maple Street.

They arrived around 9 PM with plans to be on the scene all night.

They aren't sure what sparked the fire, but it burned large piles of mulch and stumps.

Firefighters worked to keep it from spreading to expensive heavy equipment that is parked at the landfill.

We'll continue to follow this story.
