Update: Brush Fire Knocked Down

The Southbury and Oxford fire departments responded Monday morning.

Update at 11:55 a.m.

A large brush fire near a home at 622 Jacob Road in Southbury has been knocked down Monday morning, Fire Lt. Jason Decremer told Patch.

The fire, which was at least 100 feet in length and was about the same distance away from a Colonial style home at the address, was extinguished by fire crews from Southbury and Oxford, Decremer said. No injuries have been reported. 

The fire was reported after 10 a.m. Monday and officials feared the home was in danger. Dozens of firefighters from Southbury and Oxford, which is close to Jacob Road, responded and knocked down the flames within minutes.

Firefighters from the Sandy Hook section of Newtown also responded to man the fire station on Main Street in Southbury.
