Moody Fire Department continues monitoring landfill fire, rain decreasing activity
MOODY, Ala. (WBRC) - The Moody Fire Department says all the rain this weekend is helping with their landfill fire.
The flames were contained by fire breaks on Friday, but smoke continues giving some residents problems.
Moody Fire Inspector James Mulkey says the rain is helping to control the smoke, and they will continue to patrol the area day and night.
He wants the residents to know they’re working hard to protect the community.
“As we move and transition from the 24-hour patrol to 2 or 3 times a day, we hope that will reassure everyone we have a good grasp on this,” said Mulkey.
Mulkey says surrounding agencies have been beneficial in dealing with the landfill fire.
