CORNWALL – City firefighters were dealing with a couple fires almost back-to-back Thursday night.
They were called just before 9 p.m. to 1190 Montreal Road – the compound yard for City Tow – for a vehicle completely engulfed in fire.
It’s believed the fire was accidental.
After putting that out, crews were then called to a remote area of the Fly Creek reservoir for a brush fire.
Firefighters had to make their way in on foot to beat down and snuff out the flames, which they had out within a few minutes.
The fire in the tinder-dry brush was very close to the CN Rail line, east of the Virginia Drive crossing, though it’s not known what started the fire.
