NH, US officials investigating Albany brush fire engulfing over 100 acres


ALBANY — The U.S. Forest Service has implemented a Type III Incident Command Team in order to fight the ongoing brush fire near Albany.

The brush fire has engulfed over 100 acres of land as a Sunday night, according to officials.

The blaze was first reported as a five-acre fire around 4 p.m. Saturday.

Conway deputy Fire Chief Dave Weathers told The Union Leader that a real steep ledge and boulder terrain will make it hard to extinguish the fire.

The fire came within 300 yards of a covered bridge that spans the Swift River near the Kancamangus Highway, the UL reports.

There is no report of how the fire started at this time. The fire remains under investigation.

Weathers told the UL that there have been no reports of injuries or burned structures.
