JAMESTOWN — The Jamestown Rural Fire Department responded to a report of a garbage bale on fire Friday, Aug. 12, at a landfill about 4 miles east of Cavendish Farms, according to Travis Lemieux, secretary-treasurer of the department.

The Jamestown Rural Fire Department responded with four units and nine firefighters at about 10 a.m. to the landfill. Lemieux said there was a small fire in one of the garbage bales.

"(I was told) that stuff was piled there for two weeks and baled underground," he said.

He said he did not know what caused the fire.

Firefighters sprayed the area with water and closed it, Lemieux said.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
