A Floyd County company and its owner will pay over 100-thousand dollars to settle a federal complaint over a large tire fire. The U.S. Attorney says Pooley and Rottler Farms Incorporated, Rottler Farms Incorporated, and Gary Rottler will pay over 119-thousand dollars for removing chemicals created by the tire fire. The company allegedly started a fire in April of 2000 to burn some brush, and high winds spread the fire to a pile of 57-thousand discarded tires. The burning tires released about 114-thousand gallons of pyrolytic oil– posing an environmental threat.
