Ground conditions in Bethel Wednesday were muddy, wet, and on fire. Stony Hill firefighters found that grass in the wetlands does burn. About 1 to 2 acres of rough terrain off Limekiln Road caught fire around 1:30pm.
The Bethel Fire Department along with mutual aid from Redding, West Redding, Dodgingtown, Hawleyville, Sandy Hook, Brookfield, and Danbury volunteers responded. Multiple brush trucks, tankers, and all terrain vehicles got the job done in about two hours.
No injuries were reported. Bethel Ambulance had been called to the scene as a precaution.
