At 4:29 pm on Friday, 3/12/2021 the East Great Plain Fire Department was dispatched to Ann Avenue for a brush fire between the school and houses. Engine 52 arrived at 4:36 and found an area of woods and fencing burning that was about 40 feet by 200 feet. Crews stretched two 1.75” hose lines and suppressed the fire. ET-51 arrived next and helped Engine 52 get a water supply from the hydrant. ET-51 then stretched a 1.75” cross lay and helped extinguish the fire. The Norwich Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
