Crews put out large garbage fire at Waste to Energy plant
SPOKANE, Wash. — Firefighters put out a large garbage fire at the Waste to Energy Plant Tuesday morning.
Crews received a report of the fire around 11:30 a.m. As they arrived, they found significant smoke at the garbage drop off and on all four floors of the facility.
SFD crews eventually located the fire within a large pile of garbage which was 15 feet tall and 30 feet in diameter. They controlled the fire from the air, pouring water from a 100-foot ladder truck and large overhead crane.
Fortunately, the fire was limited to the garbage pile and did not spread to the structure.
