Brush Fire Burns Fence Behind Home

No structures involved. Two engine companies responded to assure there was a sufficient water supply.

A brush fire jumped to a stockade fence behind a home at 160 Grumman Ave. Saturday afternoon.

The fire destroyed about 50 feet of fence. Embers caused the top of a tree to catch fire, resulting in a burning branch falling to the ground in the backyard of a home on Arrowhead Court.

Two engine companies carrying a combined 1,500 gallons of water responded to the fire, which was reported at around 2:30 p.m. Using a single handline, firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze in about 20 minutes.

There were no injuries. No structures burned, but a plastic tarp covering an air conditioning unit melted.

Brush fires have broken out in many locations around the state in the last two weeks because of extremely dry conditions.
