Firefighters from the Moratuwa Fire Brigade douse the fire which erupted at the Karadiyana garbage pile.

The fire which erupted at the Karadiyana garbage pile, Piliyandala, yesterday, has been effectively doused, the Moratuwa Fire Brigade said.

The fire was extinguished within two hours using a backhoe, a fire extinguisher and two water bowsers, officials said. Officials also revealed that the blaze originated at the foot of the garbage pile, but they suspect it was set on fire by someone.

They said that the fire had been prevented from escalating due to the ­rainfall in the last two days and if the fire had spread over the pile, it would have been a disaster.”
