CIFS Respond to Landfill Fire

CAYMAN ISLANDS (GIS) Cayman Islands Fire Service (CIFS) crews working alongside colleagues from the Department of Environmental Health continue to make good progress excavating and extinguishing deep seated pockets of fire at the George Town landfill using safe systems of work.

This will continue throughout the evening with some variation in smoke plume size and intensity. Residents and businesses affected are reminded to keep doors and windows closed and avoid the smoke plume where possible.
