Four Companies Battle Mulch Pit Fire Near Sag Harbor

Jun 25, 2012 10:59 AM

Firemen from several local fire departments spent much of Saturday night battling a fire in a large mulch pile at a sand pit on Middle Line Highway in Noyac.

Firefighting crews from Southampton, Bridgehampton, Sag Harbor and East Hampton were called to the scene of the fire, which broke out in a mulch pile at a sand and gravel pit owned by Wainscott Sand and Gravel.

The pit was the subject of a ruling by the Southampton Town Zoning Board of Appeals just this week. The zoning board ruled that composting and mulching could not be done at the property.

Nature, I don't think they were mining irony, just sand and gravel, with a salad of mulch on the side.
