Guam - The Guam Environmental Protection Agency issued a notice of violation to Guam Cleaning Masters. Guam EPA administrator Eric Palacios confirms the NOV follows a fire that broke out at Agafa Gumas, Yigo in April of this year, where the company is permitted to compost. Although the fire was initially believed to be a result of arson, Palacios says a visiting compost expert says otherwise.

"The pile could've generated sufficient heat to be self-combustible prior to rainfall when the fire was going on," he explained,

Palacios adds the NOV was issued mainly because the fire could have been prevented. The company has agreed to seek settlement.
