Fire at Smith Road Transfer station in east Riverton on Saturday afternoon

Just before 4 pm on Saturday, smoke was seen pouring out of the south and west doors of the Smith Road Transfer station. A call to 911 revealed that the Riverton Fire Department was in the process of bringing in crew to deal with the incident, as the downtown siren could be heard in the distance sounding off. Several fire trucks and crew arrived by 4:15 and smoke soon dissipated around the building. Photo by Rich Fleetwood.
