Arkansas National Guard Arriving to Stump Dump Fire Today


The fire continues to burn underground at the Trafalgar Road site, also known as the “stump dump.”

Later today a new team will arrive to test the air quality over the area.

The Arkansas National Guard’s 61st Civil Support Team will enter the site at daybreak. 

This unit was requested by the Arkansas Department of Emergency Management to monitor the air in the community that’s alongside the stump dump.

Staff Sergeant Melody Daniel joins the show to talk about how invasive the process will be for residents around the site.
