Firefighters arrived on scene and found a large outdoor refuge fire involving a cement truck, tractor and large dumpster. A pile of trash caught on fire and spread to the dumpster and machinery nearby. Crews had to use several engines to relay the nearest water supply which was more than 3500 feet away. Once the relay was complete, the fire was quickly extinguished. Firefighters from Stations 46, 70, 36, 47, 61, 55 and 24 responded to this incident.
