   An elementary school-aged child is safe after police say a man tried to force her into a van at a bus stop.

   The girl was waiting for the bus in the 4100 block on Muro Lane in Bridgeton Wednesday. She told officers that a man in a white van parked and asked her to help him load something into the vehicle. When she refused, the man grabbed her. The girl escaped and the suspect drove off in the van.

   Pattonville School District officials say its the second incident in Bridgeton this week.  District officials sent a letter to parents saying that on Tuesday a man had approached an elementary school student in the Spanish Village neighborhood asking to talk. The boy ran away.

   In both cases, the suspect is described as a white man in his 40s.  The girl told police he has a tattoo on his right forearm and was wearing a camouflage jacket with black pants and a black baseball hat.  

   Bridgeton police say they don't know if the incidents are related, but they're ask anyone with information to call them at 314-739-7557.

   The Bridgeton incidents come less than a week after a suspicious incident at an Ellisville bus stop. A fourth-grade girl was waiting for the bus when she says a woman in a white van tried to coax her into the vehicle three separate times. The girl ran home and her parents called police.

BRIDGETON, Mo. (AP) - Residents who live near a suburban St. Louis landfill where an underground fire is burning are pushing for the immediate removal of nuclear waste that sits near the fire.

Several residents spoke out Monday at a rally near the West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton.

West Lake actually includes two landfills. Underground smoldering at the Bridgeton Landfill is creating an odor so strong that Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed suit.

The smoldering is about 1,200 feet from a second landfill that includes Cold War era atomic waste.

Environmental Protection Agency spokesman Chris Whitley says the nuclear waste is not endangered by the underground fire, and plans are in place if it gets closer. Whitley says the EPA is still weighing how best to remediate the nuclear site.

BRIDGETON, Mo. (AP) - The operators of a landfill in St. Louis County have completed a well improvement project seeking to remove odor-causing gas that has raised concerns for those who live near the facility.

Bridgeton Landfill LLC said Wednesday that it has installed 40 new wells about a week ahead of schedule. Gas will be removed through the wells, then transported to an on-site processing facility.

The landfill sits near Lambert Airport. Residents who work and live near it have complained for months about the smell and raised health concerns.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster late last month filed a lawsuit against the landfill operators, alleging violations of state environmental laws on the 52-acre site.

Missouri's Department of Natural Resources is asking the state attorney general's office to consider legal action against the owners of a Bridgeton landfill. A smoldering fire at the site has been spewing noxious fumes that local residents complain is literally making their eyes water.

NR Director Sara Parker Pauley sent a letter Thursday asking the attorney general’s agricultural and environment division to "institute appropriate legal action" against the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill on St. Charles Rock Road. The move comes of the heels of a lawsuit filed by residents against Republic Services, which owns the 52-acre site just north of Lambert Airport.

The Phoenix-based company says they've been cooperating with state and local officials to deal with the problems.
