Grass Fire
Moose Club Road

The call came in for about an acre of grass/woods fire and fire fighters reported heavy smoke while still enroute.  The units got on scene and were able to contain a much smaller fire.  The fire was caused by dumping hot ashes from the fireplace.  The new brush truck was used and worked well.  Troutman & Wayside Fire Depts. were dispatched.
