It’s been a busy afternoon working on grassfires for the BX-Swan Lake Fire Department.
Immediately as crews wrapped up extinguishing a burn pile that got out of control in the 1000 block of 25th Avenue Tuesday afternoon, March 16, they were dispatched to a report of a burn pile out of control, “the size of half a football field,” in the 5400 block of Silver Star Road just before 2:30 p.m.
And we’re back with a second grassfire in as many hours in the BX-Vernon area. Crews are on scene for what was called in as a fire ‘half the size of a football field’ off Silver Star Road. @VernonNews pic.twitter.com/XLlyj991kY

The fire is reportedly moving downhill toward BX Park.
