Fire at a Richmond Landfill

Firefighters have knocked down a massive fire at the Eco Waste Landfill in Richmond.

Deputy Chief Tim Wilkinson says there is no reason to believe the fire was suspicious, but he’s still not sure how it got started.

There was no source of water, so fire crews had to shuttle water back and forth to put out the fire.

It took three fire trucks and 12 firefighters to control the massive flames, and there are no reports of injuries or damage.
