(CROOKED LAKE) - The Northeast Indiana Solid Waste Management District says the Steuben County Compost Lot next to the Steuben County 4-H Fairgrounds is closed until further notice due to a fire on Tuesday as well as the strong winds. Steve Christman from the district says the fire started after somebody dumped some wood burning ashes. Angola firefighters and crews from the district spent over an hour putting the fire out. A back hoe had to be brought in as materials were spread out and watered down.
