A fire at the First Piedmont Landfill in Pittsylvania County is now contained as crews continue to douse hot spots. Ringgold Volunteer Fire Chief Mike Neal says they got the call around 5:45 Thursday morning. Trucks responded to the Clarks Mill Road where Neal says they found “a fire probably the length of a football field” in the landfill. Firefighters were able to reach the inferno with three attack lines as landfill personnel used bulldozers, skidders and a dump truck to cover the cinders with dirt.
