CSFC Responds to Large Brush Fire on Little Stony Point

Beginning at approximately 11:40pm on Sunday night and well into early Monday morning firefighters from Cold Spring Fire Company, Dutchess Junction Fire and North Highlands Fire Company fought a large brush fire along the shores of the Hudson River at Little Stony Point. Due to the extremely dry winter, and worsened by the early spring winds, the fire spread quickly, burning brush and trees. Over a period of a few hours the firefighters, assisted by New York State Park Rangers, brought the fire under control.

Little Stony Point Brush Fire

It is the second time this week that the CSFC has been called to Little Stony Point for brush fires. We would like to remind everyone that ALL outdoor burning is prohibited until at least May 15th and will most likely be extended further into the summer. Conditions are extremely hazardous, and even the smallest fire may quickly spread via dry grass, brush, and trees and may endanger structures.
