Firefighters battle garbage fire at waste transfer facility

OTTAWA — Ottawa firefighters are battling a garbage fire at an east-end waste depot.

Ottawa Fire Services said in a tweet they were called to Glenfield Drive, between Stevenage Drive and Overton Drive, Sunday morning.

A second tweet by fire service photographer Scott Stilborn said the blaze started in a large pile of garbage in a waste transfer building and firefighters were working with staff to separate the pile in order to reach the “deep seated fire.”

No other details about the fire were immediately available.
