Dubois firefighters respond to brush fire report

From Local Sources

DUBOIS — Units of the Dubois Volunteer Fire Department responded Wednesday afternoon to the report of a brush fire north of Dubois.

The 3:30 p.m. callout sent firefighters to the Devin Klingle property at 4813 E. Zehr Road, according to department spokesman Zach Eichmiller.

Firefighters arrived to find one-quarter acre had burned when a trash fire got out of control, Eichmiller said. Most of the fire was out when the first-arriving units got to the scene.

Eichmiller said the department extinguished the rest of the fire and wetted the burned area.

There was no property damage and no injuries.

Two trucks and nine firefighters were on the scene 30 minutes.
