OMJASVIN M D ByExpress News ServiceCHENNAI: Residents of Kodungaiyur were up in tears literally after smoke billowed from the dump yard that caught fire on Friday evening.
Soon, flames spread to other areas of the 269-acre dump yard.
Corporation officials said fire broke out in the dry weeds and quickly spread across the landfill.
“It happens only in May and is surprising to see this in February,’’ said Kamalakannan G, who lives just next to the dump yard.
‘’Methane in the dump yard is 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide,’’ said Satyarupa.
