This is an active incident at the facility's sorting center. An exterior fire, something about a dryer.

Three engines and one truck are on the scene. Doesn't sound too big.

OK CHIP, EDNEY, VOICE - here's a real time example. What do they do? Allow the fire to spread or suppress it?

What on earth does a fire at an industrial facility have to do with forest management and fire suppression policies applied to forest lands? Talk about apples and oranges

Fire was a dryer in the Resource Center and an easy knock-down as we already have containment areas there.

With all the dirty and unsorted crap we dump on our trash pick-up service, this is no surprise! In this case they're probably dealing with FREE large item pick-up "trash."
I don't know how SB can complain about Marborg service; I've never found a reason to!

Thanks for the list. I toured the facility with a group--you have to make reservations. It was fascinating. If you have the time, tour it. It's amazing.
