According to St. Louis news outlet KMOV, city fire crews were called last night for 23 fires in dumpsters across the city. While the area is no stranger to flaming piles of garbage, it's apparently unclear whether these fires were set intentionally or not. But whatever the cause, they've given us the perfect illustration for the huge, confusing mess that is 2016: a landscape so full of dumpster fires that their ominous black labels blot out the sun.
