New Delhi garbage dump spontaneously burns during record heat wave in India - New Style Motorsport

Amid a scorching heat wave, a landfill in New Delhi, India spontaneously caught fire, spewing toxic smoke into the air for three days straight, according to ABC News.

This is no ordinary landfill. According to ABC, the dump is more of a mountain of trash, taller than a 17-story building and wider than 50 football fields. (So, a garbage pile over 240 feet or 73 meters high and over 15,000 feet or 4,572 m long.) Video taken from a nearby road and shared on reddit on Tuesday (April 26) shows a towering inferno spewing toxic smoke into the air, as hordes of motorists stop traffic to enjoy the spectacle.
