Multiple departments responded to fight a fast-moving brush fire in Ledyard Saturday afternoon.
The Ledyard Fire Company responded to the area of 1906 Center Groton Road (Route 117) around 4:06 p.m., according to Fire Chief John Doucette. When they arrived they found a wind-driven brush fire spreading in the woods about a half mile off the road.
High winds, dry conditions and a remote location made the fire difficult to put out. The Gales Ferry Fire Company, Old Mystic Fire Department, North Stonington Fire Department and Center Groton Fire Department all responded to assist. Mohegan Fire Department and Montville Fire Department were also called in but were not needed at the scene.
It took firefighters around one hour to bring the brush fire under control. No injuries were reported.
