The El Dorado Public Works Department stated that the compost site will be closed approximately one to two weeks as crews work on getting material taken care of at the site to avoid further complications.

"Due to circumstances beyond our control, the city compost site is being closed due to a fire at the site," the department stated. "Citizens are encouraged to take material to the Butler County Landfill at SW 40th and Boyer Rd.

"We are sorry for the inconvenience but we feel it is necessary to closed the site for the safety of the workers attempting to control the fire."
