(CMR) The Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) is responding to an incident at the George Town landfill this evening, Tuesday, 19 January.
CIFS crews were dispatched just before 7:00 p.m. when open flames were observed from the top of the landfill.
CIFS crews have worked hard with DEH colleagues to extinguish the small fire. They will remain on scene to excavate and damp down the surrounding area to reduce the chance of re-ignition.
There is limited impact from smoke to surrounding residents and businesses.
