OGDEN, Utah, Oct. 4, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) – Crews battled a fire at Weber County Transfer Station in Ogden Monday night after an electrical outlet overheated.
Weber Fire District Deputy Fire Chief Britt Clark told Gephardt Daily that the fire broke out around 8:12 p.m. at the waste transfer station at 867 W. Wilson Lane
Waste transfer stations are facilities in which solid municipal waste is unloaded from collection vehicles and held for a short time while it is transferred to larger long-distance vehicles for transport to landfills or other treatment or disposal facilities.
It took less than 10 minutes to contain the fire, Clark said.
Clark said the fire departments that responded were Weber, Ogden, Riverdale and Roy.
Clark said no one was injured in the fire.
