August 2, 2018 ~ A fire yesterday at the Green Bay Waste landfill facility near South Brook was quickly contained by fire crews.
Firefighters from South Brook, Triton and Springdale responded to the call.
The photo above was taken at about 5:15 pm by Sherry Rideout-Mitchell, before firefighters were on scene.
While the firefighters were working to contain the fire, South Brook residents were asked to conserve water due to “the big demand on the system”.
By 10:00 pm the announcement was made that the fire was under control.
On August 2, the South Brook Town Council expressed gratitude to the volunteer firefighters who worked to contain the fire:
There was also a fire at the Green Bay Waste landfill last November.
