New Fairfield 911 received multiple reports of a brush fire Wednesday on Douglas Lane. Firefighters spotted the smoke and confirmed a working brush fire. The flames were quickly knocked down and only land was affected by the blaze. Firefighters were challenged by a steep hill, but were able to overcome that obstacle. There is no cause for the fire that is being released at this time. Firefighters urged residents to be careful with outside fires, and to keep a hose nearby in case the fire becomes uncontained.
