New Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department responded to a brush fire this weekend. It was started by hot ashes dumped outside in dry leaves. Firefighters reminded residents using fireplaces or wood burning stoves to dispose of ashes properly, in a metal container, as the embers can remain hot for days.
