Smoke from landfill fire engulfs Serbia's capital Belgrade

Acrid smoke and haze engulfed Serbia's capital Belgrade on Sunday after a fire broke out at the city's main garbage landfill site.

Authorities prompted people to stay indoors as firefighters struggled to extinguish flames at the Vinca landfill, located around 17 kilometers from downtown Belgrade near the Danube river.

Much of the fire was doused by late on Sunday but authorities said the site will continue to smoulder in the coming days.

Belgrade's mayor, Zoran Radojcic, warned people to close windows and stay indoors if they smell the smoke.

I lived in a place once where there was a landfill fire that smoldered for weeks. The stench was unreal
