UPDATE: MCFD battles TWO dumpster fires this morning

MASON CITY – The Mason City Fire Department was called to another dumpster fire early Thursday morning around 1 AM.

This latest incident was in an alley just south of Good Shepherd Nursing Home in an alley.  A red dumpster was ablaze from an unknown cause at 322 1st Street NE.  The MCFD reported that it was “fully engulfed.”

In the video below, a passer by saw the fire fighter arrive and shot the video and sent it in to NIT.

NIT has learned that a second dumpster fire was also extinguished at 25 9th Street NW at 3:05 AM.  According to the MCFD report, “Department dispatched for report of a dumpster fire at the above listed address. Unit 2315 responded code 3 without incident. Upon our arrival we found a dumpster fully engulfed. Dept extinguished and returned to service.” Fire fighters were on the scene until 3:20 AM.

A dangerous trend may be in the works, as two dumpsters were possibly set on fire intentionally Tuesday morning.
