Brush Fire Along Nor-Bath Trail

Brush Fire LocationAttack 4341 responded with the Northampton Fire Department (Fire 42) and Northampton Regional EMS (EMS 49) for a brush fire along the Nor-Bath Trail off of Smith Lane in the area of the soccer fields.


Firefighters arrived to find a brush fire approximately 25x50 feet.  The bulk of the fire was knocked down quickly using an extinguisher to prevent further spread.  While wetting down the area, firefighters noticed a column of smoke further up into the woods and located a second brush fire.  Too deep and inaccessible for hose lines, crews donned indian tanks and hauled water by foot to the seat of the fire.  A third, much smaller fire, was also located and extinguished.
