Firefighters are still on the scene this morning after a brush fire burned about 15 acres in Orange Thursday. Officials say a mulch pile caught fire around 4 o'clock Thursday afternoon. The flames burned near Edison Road. Firefighters say it was hard to get water to the fire because the closest hydrant was 3,000 feet away.
According to officials, it’s not uncommon for brush fires to break out at landscaping businesses. The crews are on the scene today to prevent any more breakouts. The fire serves as a reminder to take all weather-related warnings, watches, and advisories seriously.
