Monroe Fire Chief Battalion Chief Jack Armstrong said the fire at the transfer station has been doused and crews have wrapped up. He said the video has been reviewed and it is believed that the last dump of trash is what likely caused it. It was likely a combination of substances that didn’t go well together that likely caused it to ignite.
A rainbow shone through at the end of the event.
Battalion Chief Andrew Dykes with the City of Monroe reported that Monroe Fire Department has just been dispatched to a working structure fire at the city’s transfer station on Cherry Hill Road. Walton County Fire Rescue is also sending multiple units.
