Small brush fire in Oxford doused


OXFORD – A small brush fire burned a small area off Jenny Road on Wednesday afternoon.

Oxford Fire Department Lt. Paul Hewey said the wind picked up sparks from a permitted fire at 28 Jenny Road, which is off Pottle Road, and caught the edge of the woods on fire. An area about 25 by 50 feet burned.

There were no structures nearby, he said.

It took firefighters about an hour to put out the fire with the help of Norway firefighters, who brought additional water and manpower to the scene. The blaze occurred about 1 p.m.
