PULASKI BRUSH FIRE

About four acres was burned Wednesday after a controlled fire got out of control and spread across a field near Alum Spring Road.
Pulaski Fire Chief Bill Webb said no one was injured and no property was damaged as a result of the 10:38 a.m. fire at 3765 Second Morehead Lane.
Webb said property owner Gabor Egyed was burning leaves when the fire escaped and spread across the field. Although the fire burned to the edge of some woods, firefighters were able to stop it before it spread into the trees.
The fire was under control within about 40 minutes and the last fire department cleared the scene around 1:20 p.m.
Three fire departments responded to the scene.
Pulaski’s department provided two pieces of equipment and 17 personnel. Dublin and Newbern fire departments each brought two pieces of equipment and four personnel.
Regional Emergency Medical Services Inc. (REMSI) also was on the scene with one unit and two medics.
All three departments used an estimated 2,100 gallons of water to extinguish the flames.
No laws were violated and no summonses were issued, Webb said.
Starting Sunday, the 4 p.m. burn law takes effect in Virginia.
Under the law, open air burning is prohibited before 4 p.m. if the fire is in, or within, 300 feet of woods, brush or fields containing dry grass or other flammable materials.
Violating the law is a Class 3 misdemeanor punishable by up to a $500 fine. Violators also are responsible for suppression costs and the cost of any resulting damage.
