Landfill Fire Update at 12pm on Tuesday, 10 March

Landfill Fire Update at 12pm on Tuesday, 10 March 2020.

The Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) crews continue to make steady progress in tackling a fire at the George Town Landfill site.

Colleagues from the Department of Environmental Health are assisting with excavating, damping down and capping the areas affected in order to reduce smoke and extinguish the fire.

As anticipated, through the process of excavating, controlled flare ups have occurred which have been extinguished quickly by crews.

The next operational strategy meeting will take place on site at 4pm. A decision will then be made as to whether the smoke has subsided enough to safely allow Lakeside Apartments and Watler Road residents to return home this evening.

The next update will be shared after 4pm today.
