(CMR) The now infamous Cayman Islands Landfill is on fire again this morning. Several reports have been received about the billowing black smoke. CMR has also received video footage and photos of the large fire. We understand that the Cayman Islands Fire Service has dispatched several units to the location.
The constant fires have been a source of contention for numerous governments including the Progressive led Unity Government which saw several major fires during the last four years. Just last night minister Joseph Hew claimed at a political meeting that the dump has been a success under his leadership.
In this instance, you can actually see the fire itself as it is very close to the roadway.
Cayman Islands International School is now evacuating its children and parents are asked to immediately pick them up.
