Yard waste catches fire at Rapid City landfill for a second time

Cindy Davis, Assistant News Director

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

It sparked Wednesday night because of the high winds and is producing smoke.

Solid waste facility superintendent Karl Merbach says the fire is contained.  He expects it to be out sometime Friday.

Like the last fire that burned for more than a week, it started in the yard waste site.  But this fire is about half the size of the last.

The landfill is open for business as usual.
