Fire near Huntsville landfill under control
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Huntsville Fire & Rescue crews put out an apparent grass fire near the city’s landfill. That’s just off Leeman Ferry Road, south of Johnson & Airport.
Fire crews started arriving on the scene around 4:15 a.m. and are working to keep the fire under control and prevent it from spreading. After about 45 minutes, the fire appeared to be under control.
The fire burned about 400 square yards of trash
Investigators say they don’t really know the cause and says Huntsville Fire Department isn’t investigating because it’d be a difficult investigation, compared to trying to find a needle in a haystack.
He did say the fire could have been started by something like a lithium battery used in laptops or cell phones.
