Crews Respond to Wheel Road Brush Fire
There were no injuries reported, according to officials.
First responders tended to a fire in the woods and field on the 800 block of East Wheel Road Thursday afternoon, according to Rich Gardiner, spokesman for the Harford County Volunteer Fire and EMS Association.
Gardiner said the Abingdon and Bel Air companies were working to put out the fire, which was near Cedar Lane.
"The weather will be breaking soon so field and woods fires will ramp up," Gardiner said.
According to the National Weather Service, wind gusts were forecast to be up to 28 mph in Bel Air Thursday. Wind can change the direction and reach of a fire.
Gardiner said Thursday's fire was "a small one."
