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.
No injuries were reported. Firefighters were on scene for about 30 minutes.
