Winds, dry weather are perfect ingredients for NH brush fires
This past weekend, city fire crews responded to Mine Falls Park and Lincoln Park for separate brush fires. The blaze at Mine Falls Park on Sunday spanned about three to four acres, according to Kerrigan, who said the Lincoln Park fire damaged less than one acre of property.
“Some of these fires are already in the ground. We have to use foam to penetrate the fire, as it is not just on the surface,” Kerrigan said.
In addition to Nashua, Hudson had its own brush fire on Sunday night. Shortly before 10 p.m. a fire was reported in the area of Shingle Mill Road and Oliver Drive.
