VIDEO: Most everyone would agree 2020 was a dumpster fire. A town thought that a dumpster fire was, in fact, the perfect way to say farewell to the past year. “Tonight, we’re basically just saying bye to 2020 in a different way,” Fire Chief Brett Ruff said. “Tonight we are having a literal dumpster fire in Belen,” Mayor Jerah Cordova said. The message isn’t hard to miss. Goodbye 2020. “That’s what we’re doing, to just get rid of all our trash. That’s the way we kinda look at it!” Ruff said. The mayor of Belen and fire department invited residents out to watch this year go up in flames. “They’re driving up to give us their old calendars, some of their paper masks, that type of thing. Just to burn it off and just say bye to 2020 and hello to 2021,” Ruff said.
