Officials determined the tire fire at Brownsville's landfill last week is not the result of arson.
Brownsville Fire Chief, Lenny Perez, says they've completed a thorough investigation and found out that the fire was started accidentally. The fire burned thousands of tires at the landfill and kept local firefighters busy battling the flames for more than 20 hours on Friday.
