PLAINFIELD, N.Y.-- Two acres of land on a Plainfield farm were scorched Saturday evening in a brush fire.
The fire broke out around 6:30 p.m. when a farmer burning brush on a hill could no longer contain the flames.
Mutual aid was called into help the Unadilla Forks Fire Department.
"We got called out and we had to get some people with four-wheel drive firefighting equipment, because our equipment, most of it can't get out there," Keith Chapman, the Second Assistant Chief for Unadilla Forks said. "We got one truck out there and we got it knocked down pretty quick."
The fire was extinguished by 7:45 p.m. and no injuries were reported.
Though farmers are exempt from brush burn bans, other homeowners are prohibited from burning brush in upstate New York through May 14.
