The Kimberley Transfer Station is indefinitely closed following Friday night’s fire at the main building.
The Regional District of East Kootenay says the building and one of the skid steers suffered extensive damage.
Clean up efforts are underway and fire crews are on-site to monitor hot spots.
The cause of the fire is unknown.
RDEK solid waste superintendent Jim Penson says they’ll have a better idea what they’re dealing with once the building is secure.
The closest full-service facility is the Cranbrook Transfer Station.
