EPA Working to Contain S.C. Landfill Fire

The EPA is continuing to work to contain the effects of a landfill fire in Chester County, S.C. that has been burning since last November. (See previous reports here, here and here.)

WMBF News has the latest:

The Environmental Protection Agency is now stepping in to help clean up a landfill fire that one upstate community says is making them sick.

The fire at Bennett's Landfill in Chester County has been burning since November and smoke from the blaze has been blowing into the neighboring Lockhart community in Union County.

Lockhart residents said they are sick of the smoke and fear it could be making them sick as well.
