GAINESVILLE - The landfill fire that kept Gainesville and Hall County firefighters busy for several hours Sunday was still smoldering and creating some smoke Tuesday. The fire is burning construction debris.<br /> <br /> "As of this (Tuesday) afternoon, the landfill fire had about stopped smoking/smoldering," Hall County Fire Marshal Scott Cagle said Tuesday night. <br /> <br /> Cagle said heavy equipment was being used Tuesday to try and extinguish it. A state patrol helicopter helped fight the fire Sunday.<br /> <br /> He added that the cause of the fire "remains unknown but nothing is suspicious."<br /> <br /> Cagle noted on Sunday that fires at the site, on Old County Dump Road, happen "from time to time."
