This is a prime example of why illegal waste dumping poses hazards to our lands, communities and firefighters.
From the Source:
"A brush fire on Kauai scorched 30 acres of land near Pilipoli Road late Monday."
"By 6:30 p.m., firefighters had control of the flames, but a pile of waste kept the flames from being fully extinguished. The pile consisted of abandoned vehicles, tires and other objects. It was removed by a bull-dozing crew sent by the Department of Public Works."
