This week's fire at part of the Iqaluit dump was much cleaner and smaller than the 2014 "dumpcano" because of lessons learned from that experience, according to the city.
"This is a much smaller deal," said Romeyn Stevenson, Iqaluit's deputy mayor.
"It's our separated wood pile making it much cleaner," he said, adding, "the last fire was a toxic fire."
