Mulch fire sends smoke over U.S. 22 near Iannetti's Garden Center

Multiple crews are on scene of a mulch fire at Iannetti's Garden Center in Washington County, Pa.

Multiple crews are on scene of a mulch fire at Iannetti's Garden Center in Washington County, Pa.

The fire has been burning since Tuesday, and smoke from the smoldering mulch has been seen hovering over U.S. 22.

Washington County dispatchers say crews were dispatched at 8:15 a.m. to resume putting out the fire. They say no one is in danger.

At least five fire companies from Midway, Hanover, Burgettstown, and the surrounding area, including some departments from West Virginia are on the scene.

Bulldozers are also pushing the mulch, shortening its room to grow. The density and the chemicals in the mulch are likely going to make the fight an all-day affair.
