Work to put out the Trafalgar Road fire burning in Bella Vista continues.

According to the Bella Vista POA, a majority of excavation work is concentrated on the west and northwest side of the underground fire.

Crews are monitoring hot spots and watching for potential flare-ups.

They’re using air curtain technology around the clock to remove the large tree trunks and stumps.

As per the POA’s agreement with the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, the fire needs to be completely out by mid-June.
