FRAMINGFHAM – Firefighters were called to Dennison Avenue Sunday morning, November 22, for a small brush fire, started by someone illegally burning leaves.
Tower 1 and Engine 3 responded to the fire in District 7 around 10 a.m. said Framingham Fire Deputy Fire Chief Paul Gildea.
Upon arrival firefighters saw a 100 by 100 foot fire that was headed toward two homes on Elizabeth Circle, said the Deputy Fire Chief.
The fire started when a homeowner was burning leaves, and the wind got a hold of it, and took control, explained Deputy Fire Chief Gildea.
It is illegal to burn leaves.
Twigs & branches can only be burned during burning season with a permit. Burning season in the City of Framingham ended on May 1.
The wind captured the fire and extended it to a shed on a neighboring property. There was damage to that shed.
Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire.
