The quickly spreading brush fire was in a wooded area behind a home on Old Field Road. Firefighters quickly doused the flames and had the fire under control in 15 minutes, before it could spread to nearby vehicles, farm equipment and homes. Crews remained on scene for another 45 minutes conducting overhaul of the area, extinguishing hot spots. About 19 acres of land in Southbury burned in a brush fire on Friday.
