The recent fire at the Butt Lane landfill site is now out. Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service announced: “The fire at a landfill site on Butt Lane, Milton is now extinguished. Our firefighters have checked the area for hot spots using a thermal imaging camera and will be leaving the scene today [Thursday]. Butt Lane is now open to traffic.
