The firefighters discovered a dumpster fire, which they were able to extinguish without any injuries. (RELATED: Fire At Florida Airport Destroys 3,500 Cars)

“The last fire of the year for BCFR and Station 48 kinda sums up 2020. Wishing for a better and prosperous 2021 for Brevard County!” the fire department tweeted.

Three barns at an egg farm also caught fire in December in Florida, killing thousands of chickens, Spectrum News Bay 9 reported. Cal-Maine Foods, based in Mississippi, owns the farms.

Brevard County Florida Fire Rescue didn’t immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
