The recent major fire at the massive garbage dump at Ariyamangalam here lasting several days causing torrid times to residents in its vicinity has prompted firefighters to moot a long-term solution to tackle such situation in future.
This is not the first time that the Ariyamangalam dump, which has been in existence for over two decades, has seen such a major fire.
Fire fighters have different classification for fire with the Ariyamangalam dump falling under the “A” class.
The monitors would “throw” water in a diagonal manner on the garbage mounds which would cool the area checking spread of fire, say the officials.
The firefighters feel that the garbage mounds could be compartmentalised more as this would enable free movement of fire tenders inside and minimising spread of fire.
