High winds fuel another fire at the landfill


There's another fire burning at the Rapid City Landfill.

It sparked last night because of the high winds ... And is producing smoke.

Solid Waste Facility Superintendent Karl Merbach says the fire is contained.

He doesn't expect it to be out until sometime tomorrow.

Like the last fire that burned for more than a week, it started in the yard waste site.

But this one is about half the size of the last.

The landfill is open for business.
