Fire breaks out at Meethotamulla garbage dump

A fire broke out at the Meethotamulla garbage dump today, the Fire Brigade said.

The fire brigade said that fire engines were deployed to the location to extinguish the flames.

Last November a fire broke out at the dump and it had to be extinguished by the fire brigade with the assistance of the army and Police.

The fire was reported to have been ignited by methane gas in the dump.

In March last year a similar fire erupted at the dump. (Colombo Gazette)
