A brush fire in New Milford this weekend was extinguished before it reached a nearby business.  Firefighters responded to Danbury Road Saturday and found a fast moving grass fire that was climbing the hill along the Walmart parking lot and headed for the Ski Haus property.  Water Witch Hose sent several engines to the scene and were able to make quick work of containing the flames and protecting the adjacent buildings.  Northville and Brookfield provided extra tankers.  Throughout the Spring forest fire season, the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection sends daily advisories on forest fire danger levels--classified at low, moderate, high, very high or extreme. In an average year approximately 500 acres of Connecticut woodland are burned by forest fires.
