Governor Asa Hutchinson will tour the hazardous waste fire and dump — often referred to as the ‘Stump Dump’ fire in Bella Vista on Friday, December 28.
Hutchinson’s press secretary told KNWA he will take a private tour of the stump dump site that’s on Trafalgar Road and then will then elaborate on how he plans to help eliminate it.
Recently, Hutchinson announced funding dedicated to putting the fire out. In a statement he said:
“This is an expensive project, and I have approved necessary funds for the engineering work.
Additional funds and expertise will be needed to eliminate the hazard.
I am committed to a solution that works as quickly and as safely as possible.”
