Brush fires keep crews busy

Posted: Updated:

Numerous grass and brush fires have been keeping firefighters busy across our region, including one near Leggett Road in Champlain, N.Y.

A farmer was doing some burning on his field when it spread to the woods. Crews from about five different departments responded. Firefighters are confident they'll get it under control.

And in Essex, the town has declared an emergency burn ban on all outdoor burning-- that includes permits already issued. It will remain in effect until we get significant rain.
