The Weyburn landfill will be open again for regular hours of operation Thursday after it was closed for part of the day Wednesday as crews dealt with a fire at the facility.
Superintendent of Public Works Todd Bedore spoke to Discover Weyburn while crews were battling the blaze, which started around 2:00 p.m.
"So, we had one of our pieces of equipment start on fire and with it being a little bit of a windy day it got into another area," explained Todd Bedore, Superintendent of Public Works. "I guess it's on the east side of the landfill. The Fire Department and some of our staff are working hard right now and they have it well maintained and under control."
Everyone was safe and accounted for, and crews worked throughout the afternoon and into the evening dealing with hotspots.
