Fire crews say the 5000 square feet of waste was up in flames at the Eco Waste Landfill in Richmond, is under control.
Batallion Chief Trevor Johnson says though a cause has not been determined, an investigator likely won’t be called in.
“Unless we can determine that there is a need, if we find something suspicious, we will call out a fire investigator. But at this point, these things just tend to happen on a yearly basis at these landfills.”
Johnson says crews arrived at the scene around 4pm.
No one has been injured.
