East side landfill fire extinguished

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON – The Tucson Fire Department confirms the east side landfill fire is now extinguished.

The green-waste landfill, located near East Drexel and South Houghton roads, turned into a sea of flame on Sunday, prompting fire crews to begin an around-the-clock operation to put out the blaze.

Fairfax Companies, LLC, which manages the Drexel Land Reclamation Facility, will continue to moisten the debris piles to ensure the fire doesn’t rekindle.

A cause of the fire is not yet known.
