Port Townsend: Firefighters douse stubborn dump blaze

PORT TOWNSEND — Firefighters from four departments contained a Wednesday night trash fire at the Jefferson County landfill before it could get out of control.

Emergency workers at the scene also credited the landfill supervisor with preventing the blaze from spreading before they arrived.

It took firefighters nearly an hour to extinguish the blaze, which broke out in a trailer at the Jefferson County Transfer Station on Landfill Road.

Nobody was injured in the fire.
