Penticton fire crews extinguished two fires at the Campbell Mountain landfill on Tuesday night, Dec. 8.
Assistant fire chief Rob Trupp says the first blaze sparked at 5:30 a.m., with firefighters arriving at a yard waste pile in flames.
Another fire sparked at the landfill nearly 18 hours later. A different pile of yard waste in the same area caught fire and crews responded to the incident just after 11:30 p.m.
Water shuttling operations, heavy equipment and handlines were used to extinguish both fires.
There were no injuries in either incident, according to Trupp.
