Small Brush Fire in Courthouse

Firefighters put out a small brush fire in Courthouse this afternoon. A pile of fallen leaves and branches caught fire near a power substation at the Woodbury Park apartments. The flames were quickly extinguished.

It’s not clear how the fire started, although Dominion Power was evaluating the substation following the fire.

The photo above was taken shortly after the incident, as firefighters were apparently refilling their engine with water from a hydrant.
