Fire flares up at landfill

Cayman Islands Fire Service crews were back on the scene of a landfill fire early Sunday after it flared up again overnight.

Chief Fire Officer Dennom Bodden said a fire had been reported at the George Town dump site on Friday, but he said crews had initially gotten it under control. 

Some wispy white smoke could be seen floating over the landfill early Saturday, but by Sunday the smoke had again turned black as flames flared back up.
