Delanco Fire Chief Ron Holt said crews were back out at the Coopertown Road site on Friday night after the fire rekindled. They doused that flare-up (which wasn't the first) and, with the rain on Saturday, it appears the remaining hot spots have been completely extinguished, he said.
Disposal of the spoiled food, which was responsible for the foul odor at and around the site, also continued through the weekend, with 85 truckloads removed on Saturday, and another 105 on Monday, according to a release from Burlington County Freeholder Director Joe Donnelly.
Donnelly said the "product removal phase of the cleanup" is 90 percent complete, and expected to be finished Tuesday. According to the freeholder director, this aspect of the cleanup was initially anticipated to take up to eight weeks. In only two weeks, he said, 35 million pounds of spoiled food have been removed.
Holt said the investigation into the cause of the fire is also ongoing, with no new information.
