Boston firefighters are currently at Landscape Express at 415 American Legion Highway, where its landmark mulch pile has caught fire. A ladder truck has been brought in to try to spray it down from the top; the company has been asked to send somebody in with a front-end loader because Mt. Mulchmore will need to be taken apart to get to the inner flames. Also, engine trucks have to line up to relay water from a hydrant; the pile itself has no nearby hydrants.
