Dozens of Firefighters Respond to Large Transfer Station Blaze in Rockville

Firefighters responded to the Montgomery County Transfer Station located on Shady Grove Road in Rockville around 9:00 p.m. on Wednesday night.

MCFRS Chief, Scott Goldstein says there was a large fire in the trash pit located inside of the building. At one point, it took about 85 personnel to battle the blaze.  The fire fighters were involved in tedious and labor-intensive work to separate and extinguish the burning trash according to MCFRS spokesman Pete Piringer. Heavy equipment was also used to grab the trash and pull it apart so they could gain access to the actual fire and completely put it out.

Chief Goldstein says there are no concerns with building structure ability, and there were no injuries.
