It is often hard for firefighters to determine whether to spend a fortune on what is a burn that is out of control because the dry weather creates fire conditions.
Brush fire off North Bergen Road
Submitted by Billie Owens on March 24, 2012 - 12:25pm
A brush fire is reported just east of 6385 N. Byron Road. Bryon and South Byron fire departments are dispatched. The location is between Route 237 and Bird Road.
UPDATE 1:54 p.m.: All responding units are back in service. We believe this was a controlled burn that the firefighters extinguished. We heard that they had talked with the property owner, which we take to mean they informed the person about opening burn regulations.
