Trash Fire Burns Near 15th and Broadway
Posted January 30th, 2014 @ 7:01am by KFBK News

A fairly sizable trash fire is burning off 15th and Broadway.

Sac City Fire says a garbage truck noticed something in their load was burning, so they dumped the load on the side of 15th Street near Broadway. 

"It does look like a fair amount of garbage, but we have enough resources on scene, and, in fact, I'm sure the fire crews will be able to have this extinguished probably, and hopefully cleaned up in just a couple of hours," Sac City Fire Chief Niko King said

King says it is procedure for garbage trucks to immediately drop their load if they notice something inside the unit burning.

Smoke from the fire is filtering through the neighborhood making for a not-so-fresh smell.
