Crews were sent to reports of smoke issuing from a full recycling trailer, full of mixed waste. Crews arrived on scene and got to work to extinguish a deep seated fire within the waste. Crews used 6 main jets, 4 breathing apparatus, compressed air foam, a thermal imaging camera and 2 ladders to put the fire out.

These are the final details.
