Bayle Mountain brush fire in Ossipee could take days to put out

The Associated Press

OSSIPEE — A New Hampshire forest ranger says it could take days to put out a brush fire that's over 130 acres in a steep, rocky area on Bayle Mountain in Ossipee.

The N.H. Army National Guard sent out a helicopter to help fight the fire Wednesday, and might return Thursday.

The fire is in a remote location of the Ossipee mountain range.

Brush fires have been popping up around the state. One in Northfield shut down Route 140 near the Belmont town line, burning about 80 acres. The fire was about a half-mile from homes. Another in Merrimack didn't threaten any structures.

A fire warning continued Thursday for northern and central New Hampshire.
