Officials say a fire at the Rapid City landfill that is producing heavy smoke could continue for days.
The fire began early Thursday in the yard waste recycling area of the landfill. Fire crews are allowing it to burn out while they keep it contained to that area. The fire area is about the size of 1 ½ football fields.
Motorists on state Highway 79 are being urged to use caution because of the smoke that could reduce visibility.
