REDMOND, OR -- Fire destroyed a semi-trailer full of trash at Redmond’s Negus Transfer Station, Friday. The blaze caused a large smoke column in the northeast section of the city.

 

Crews flooded the trailer with about 25,000 gallons of water to completely extinguish the flames, and make sure it didn’t spread to surrounding trailers or brush. Damage is estimated at about $80,000. 

 

Fire officials remind residents to make sure trash dumped at transfer stations is free of burning material, like ashes, briquettes and fireworks.
