Flames Leap from Trash Pile at San Marcos Waste Facility

A raging fire at a San Marcos trash and recycling facility prompted a major fire department response to stop its spread Friday evening.

A trash pile caught fire just after 5 p.m. outside the EDCO Waste and Recycling Services building at 168 S. Las Posas Road.

Multiple fire engines from the San Marcos Fire Department were called out to help.

Firefighters grabbed a hose and climbed up a ladder to extinguish the fire from a higher angle.

No injuries were reported, and there is no word on the cause.

Smoke could be seen off State Route 78.
