FIREFIGHTERS from Station 49 stand near a load of trash on Greenstone Road near Highway 50. A Waste Management truck driver noticed smoke coming from the back of the truck and pulled over, dumping the load on the side of the road. The winds fanned the flames, causing the fire to further ignite. Engines 88 and 49 responded, and firefighters applied Class A foam, putting out the fire on the burning debris.
