Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency is putting together a timeline on action the agency has taken against Joseph Taitano, the owner of an illegal dump that caught fire and has been burning for more than a week now.  Although notices of violations and citations were issued to Taitano, the agency never responded to his remedial plan that he submitted last June. 

The Attorney General's Office confirms they have not received information on the Guam EPA's follow-up inspection last year or its response to Taitano's plan.  Firefighters meanwhile have been working 9-5 to extinguish the deep seeded fire.  While air testing will be conducted tonight, officials are also working to procure full face respirators and filters for firefighters.
