There is a fire burning in the wood piles at the Wasa Transfer Station. The fire is currently contained to the three or four piles on west side, which have good road buffers around them. We have a water truck en route as well as the contractor who has his machine on site from unrelated work in the area. He can use the hoe to provide additional guarding if we need it.
So, at the moment, things are looking good – and we continue to ask everyone to stay away so we can get the situation fully dealt with.
The fire may cause some additional smoke in the air this evening (there is also a small forest fire being actioned closer to Fort Steele, which has contributed to the smoke we have seen since early this afternoon).
Unless something significant changes, the next update will be tomorrow when things are fully wrapped up.
