Brush Fire at Bridgeton Landfill, 10/24/2015

Just Moms STL

Here are pictures taken at the Bridgeton Landfill on October 24, 2015, while the grass was burning.  The winds at the time were between 13-15 mph from West or West- Northwest.  This was just 3.5 to 4 car lengths from the West Lake Landfill, Radiological Area 1 which has radioactive waste that is being threaten by the underground fire just south of were this grass fire occurred.

If this had not been spotted and reported, the outcome might have been totally different for those of us who live in the area around this landfill complex with an underground burning fire on one side and nuclear waste on the other.  This grass fire is just another indication of the unexpected that happen on this site.
