Forest Fire in Warwarsing (Aug 21)

Unread post by dave »

Town of Wawarsing in Ulster County

Wildland Fire:
On Aug. 21 at 4:30 p.m., Forest Rangers responded to the Losees Hill Fire behind Laurel Mountain Road in Wawarsing. Rangers worked on bulldozer lines to contain the fire to 2.5 acres. Rangers were assisted by multiple volunteer fire departments and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. By 10:40 p.m., the fire was 75 percent contained.

Dry weather throughout the summer has increased the risk of fires. More information about how to reduce the risk of wildfires can be found at DEC's website: https://www.dec.ny.gov/press/125781.html
