The Amherst News - - NEWS -

There is noth­ing left stand­ing of a sort­ing build­ing that caught fire at the Lit­tle Forks Mu­nic­i­pal Land­fill near Springhill.

Re­spond­ing fire crews were forced to bring down the build­ing to ex­tin­guish the on­go­ing fire first no­ticed by staff early Sept. 12.

Fire de­part­ments from Springhill, Amherst, Ox­ford and sur­round­ing ar­eas re­sponded to the fire. Most op­er­a­tions at the Cum­ber­land Joint Ser­vices Man­age­ment Author­ity-run fa­cil­ity were able to carry on de­spite the fire.

Ap­prox­i­mately 19 em­ploy­ees worked in­side the lost build­ing.
