LADSON, SC (ALEX HEATON, WTAT-TV) — An outdoor fire lit up up the sky along Highway 78 early this morning as large piles of mulch burned at a Ladson Wood Recycling Center.

The scene was still very active into the morning Thursday as people hit the road and began to head into work.

Traffic was backed up along Highway 78 in the 900-block as ash began to fall from the wide column of smoke.

The initial call came in around 3:30am, but fire crews announced the fire was under control by 8:00am.
