Firefighters battled a large fire at a 30-foot tall mound of mulch at landscaping company on the American Legion Highway for several hours Saturday night, the Boston fire department said.

“It’s literally a mountain of mulch,” Boston fire spokesman Brian Alkins said.

The fire broke out at a landscaping company located at 415 American Legion Highway, Boston fire said on Twitter. The fire is in multiple locations and a lack of hydrants in the area is making the fire especially difficult to fight, they said.
