Markham waste management centre on fire
Fire began Tuesday night, continues to burn Wednesday morning
Markham firefighters continue to battle a fire at a waste management facility at 14th Avenue and Rodick Road that broke out overnight.
As of 9:30 a.m., firefighters were still working to extinguish the blaze, which Markham spokesperson Alex Freeman said was at least partially fuelled by waste burning inside the facility.
