|Afternoon Field Fire|
|June 17, 2023|
Today at 1539 hrs, the Honey Brook Fire Company was dispatched to the 500 block of Pleasant View Road, in Honey Brook Township for a reported brush fire. Brush 33 arrived first and found an active field fire roughly 2 acres in size. Crews from Brush 33, Engines 33-1, and 33-5 were quickly able to contain the fire and prevent any further spread. While clearing the scene, Engine 33-5 observed heavy smoke in the area and decided to investigate. Crews found a large controlled burn on the 300 block of Pleasant View and extinguished the fire out of an abundance of caution.
We’d like to remind all residents to be cautious when open burning as dry conditions still persist in our area.
