On May 30 at 3:40 p.m., Forest Ranger Jackson responded to a wildfire in Poestenkill, New York in Rensselaer County. Ranger Jackson found multiple log piles on fire producing extreme heat and 40 foot flames. "The fire was the result of a bonfire not fully extinguished nor in a proper fire pit. Ranger Jackson issued one ticket for failing to clear flammable material around a fire," the DEC stated.
