Crews Battle Brush Fire in Moosic

MOOSIC BOROUGH — The fire department believes a brush fire in Lackawanna County may have been caused by a camp fire that was left unattended in the woods behind a building.

The fire started behind a holding lot for old and new vehicles owned by Manooka Subaru.

Crews were able to douse flames quickly but they say this is just the beginning of brush fire season so far it’s the biggest fire they’ve seen this year.

The department of conservation of natural resources was called in to help douse flames over head this afternoon.

Old tires and shrubs in the woods were put out within two hours by local departments.

Moosic’s department believes the fire may have started by a campfire in the woods.

The windy and warm weather was just the right mix to spark the blaze.
