Mount Mansfield wildfire extinguished

Posted: Updated:
STOWE, Vt. -

Firefighters in Stowe say the wildfire on Mount Mansfield is now out.

A campfire got out of control due to wind gusts Monday morning and the fire burned overnight into Tuesday. More than 2 acres have burned. The remote location meant that for several hours Monday, crews had to backpack water to the site. Tuesday, fire crews began pumping water from a beaver pond, and off and on showers also helped. Fourteen fire departments and 100 firefighters worked to put the fire out.
