Burning takes place at the old landfill park
The smoke crept over the grass, floating above the ground like a ghostly apparition. With the slightest change of wind, the smoke stood up and obscured the sun whirling like a tornado. Nearby, people stood in bright yellow overcoats and face masks, carefully watching the grass burn.
Somerset Fire/Rescue, along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, did a controlled burn of 29 acres at the site of the old Somerset landfill on Friday, April 9.
