Early morning fire at Central City Transfer Station
CENTRAL CITY, Neb. (Nebraska) – A fire was reported early Tuesday morning at the Central Transfer Station in Central City.
The Central City Volunteer Fire Department was dispatched just before 9 a.m. to a fire at the Transfer Station.
Assistant Fire Chief Troy Wells said there was a lot of flames and black smoke when they arrived at the scene. He said the fire was caused by a burning ember that had been dumped from a garbage truck. The embers started smoking and increased from there.
“It went up pretty fast,” Wells said.
Wells added that the smoke was the worst, making it hard for them to see where they were putting the water.
Firefighters managed to get the blaze under control and got busy clearing and cleaning the piles of waste.
Wells said the building has a little more soot than before and some heat damage.
No one was injured in the fire.
