Mulch fire smoke lingers in parts of Memphis

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

The Memphis Fire Department spent several hours Tuesday putting out a massive mulch fire.

Firefighters said the mulch fire is under control, but they will continue to monitor it for the next few days. Because the mulch is so dense, firefighters will spray it down every few hours as a precaution.

Some viewers said they are still smelling and seeing smoke around Memphis and Shelby County on Wednesday morning. There is nothing to worry about, the smoke should dissipate as time goes on.
