Dept. of Ecology Wants Plan for Pasco Landfill Fire

The Washington State Department of Ecology is ordering a plan to be developed in two weeks on how to put out a fire that continues to burn underground at the Pasco Sanitary Landfill.

The fire has been burning since November and the state wants the responsible parties to submit a plan and extinguish the fire.

The landfill has been closed for a long time and is a federal superfund site.

The state says there is a list of 32 businesses and government agencies that could be potentially liable for the landfill's cleanup and that all have received the order to develop a plan.
