Fire under control
The DAILY NATION yesterday received word that a raging inferno at the Mangrove Landfill has been fully brought under control.
General manager of the Sanitation Service Authority (SSA) Stanton Alleyne said that the fire was close to being extinguished.
Alleyne said that 100 per cent of the affected area was now covered with mould but “that does not mean we will no longer be monitoring the area”.
“I am thankful to the various parties who worked hard over the past few days to get things under control.
“But even now it is all covered, we will continue to monitor and work on it over the next few weeks to make sure that everything remains stable and under control.” (AH)
