    Great work by the fire fighters but why does this happen is it started or freak of nature? It stinks what ever part of town it blows on and its the 2nd time in as many months, Just wondering.

      It’s preventable if the site owners invest in temperature monitoring. But as long as the costs are on the community why would they?
