Recycling fire brings smoke in area

On Saturday early morning,  Rural Metro Fire Department responded to a commercial fire in the area of County 13th st. and Avenue 4E. 

RMFD found a large pile of trash on fire endangering the surrounding bush. The commercial structure is a recycling center with layers of trash burning. 

RMFD will remain on scene to make sure all hot spots are extinguished. The Marine Core Air Station Fire Department was requested for a water tender. Yuma County Sheriff has assisted with  traffic control.

The fire is contained but will continue to smoke and it can get really thick when cloudy and at night. It is advised by RMFD, if you have breathing issues to please close windows and doors to keep the smoke out. If possible make arrangements to stay with a friend or relative for a day or two.
