Can't they just empty that waste pond from a couple of days ago into it and solve both problems?

I'm sure a fiery mountain of trash smells lovely. And isn't bad for your health at all.

Its like the land itself is trying to get rid of the infestation

When a landfill catches fire, there are two things that should be done: 1) call the fire department and 2) call the EPA (2 is because who knows what in the hell actually got dumped into that landfill).

Now they just have to kill a few unarmed black folks and they'll be all set.

At least they're unlikely to have a coal seam right underneath the town dump, like Centralia PA did.

Oooo that's going to be a biatch to put out. I hope the VFD didn't get suckered into it.

Good thing the oceans are rising. The fire might continue until the tide comes in.

I grew up about 50 miles east of Akron and we could smell it from there with a good westerly wind.   The CAA/CWA changed that a little bit.

Look on the bright side, it doesn't appear to be a nuclear waste landfill on fire like in St. Louis.

Several crews in St. Johns County worked to put a large fire overnight at a landfill on St. Mark's Pond Road.

So how freaking lazy are they in Florida. You need several crews to start a fire. A gallon of gas, Bic lighter, & 1 guy should be more than enough.

Florida, it's probably unionized.

Damn, that's scary/awful.
TIL Bill Gates has diversified his portfolio into landfill services.
