Brighton firefighters spent hours at the town landfill Tuesday with more than 100 first responders  battling a blaze that was expected to burn throughout the night.

Crews were on the scene since about 5pm  Tuesday. Reportedly,  firefighters  had to lay down fire hose for about a quarter-mile to supply water to fight the blaze.

Officials are still investigating what sparked the fire which produced smoke that could be seen for miles.
