The FDNY extinguished a brush fire that ignited deep in an area of La Tourette Golf Course off of Forest Hill Road in New Springville on Sunday evening.
“It’s a small area of brush; accessing it was the hardest part,” said an FDNY official of the fire that igited around 8 p.m. “We wanted to get to it before it took off any further, but we knocked it down.”
Firefighters had to use several different paths to access the fire, the official added.
A number of FDNY units could be seen lined up along Forest Hill Road behind Costco, while several more units could be seen gathered on Old Mill Road behind St. Andrew’s Church.
No injuries were reported.
