WILMINGTON -- Firefighters responded to a brush fire in a 100-foot by 100-foot area Tuesday night deep in the woods off Douglas Avenue.
Lt. Christopher Pozzi said crews responded to the area at 9:12 p.m. and worked almost 90 minutes to put out the fire. He said it appeared a campfire had been left unattended.
"We could see the rocks built up around it, as a fire pit," he said.
There will be no investigation into the matter.
Pozzi noted the fire spread across the surface of the wooded area due to moisture deep in the ground. He said years ago, the town had problems with brush fires in that area near Middlesex Avenue and Glenville Circle, but this is the first one to occur there in a while.
