"The Minister said he was not quick to react after last week’s fires, because “next week it will be on fire again. There is no time the landfill is not on fire.”"

Wow..

not surprising and in a way actually funny. I would be willing to bet it is methane buildup. Every go by a landfill and see the metal pipe and hose sticking up all over it. That is a methane relief and capture system.

Yes, but we are talking SXM and not what we are used to seeing in the US. Not unusual to see gas burning off at various other places but not a raging fire of tires and trash.

Maybe they should go back to the 70's and open an incinerator. <img src="http://www.traveltalkonline.com/forums/images/graemlins/toast.gif" alt="" />

60,000 tires? The only thing to do with them is to ship them off-island for recycling.
