AUGUSTA - A fire erupted early Saturday morning at the Hatch Hill solid waste facility in Augusta.


Fire officials said debris caught fire and spread over three acres. Crews had to haul in water to put out the flames.


It took a little more than six hours to get the fire under control, no one was hurt. 


Crews said they will be keeping an eye on the area because they expect it to smolder for the next few days.
