Crews Battle Large Brush Fire in Shelton

Lewisville Police and Fire confirmed Saturday that they responded to the fire around 12:19 a.m. at the Windsor Court apartments in the 200 block of East Southwest Parkway.

Fire crews battled a large brush fire in Shelton Sunday night as the state remains under a "Red Flag Warning" due to very dry conditions.

Crews said they received several 911 calls reporting a large brush fire in the woods between Old Stratford Road and Partridge Lane at approximately 7:20 p.m.

When firefighters arrived, they saw the fire deep in the woods and up a significant incline.

Crews worked to contain the fire from different points as the fire gained ground.

The fire was brought under control in less than an hour but crews remain at the scene dousing hotspots, fire crews said.

Approximately 25 firefighters worked to put out the blaze.

No injuries were reported and no structures were damaged.
