PHILIPSBURG – The dump on Pond Island was on fire again for the past couple of days. On Saturday the fire seemed to intensify and these was no visible action to douse it. A heavy cloud of poisonous smoke drifted towards town and according to one observation, it even reached the hospital in Cay Hill.

The outgoing government prided itself in having put a stop to the dump fires, saying that increased security at the site had prevented people from setting fires at the location.
