Beetham Fire

60 percent of Beetham landfill fire extinguished

The Solid Waste Management Company says the fire at the Beetham landfill was started by illegal salvaging.

The company says that so far 60% of the fire has been extinguished and smoke is currently not affecting Port of Spain and environs due to the wind direction.

However SWMCOL is advising all commuters to proceed with caution along the Beetham highway.
