In the afternoon of 5/8/2023, the Manchester Fire Department dispatched an engine to Brown Avenue for a report of a brush fire. Engine 3 found fire working its way up the hill from Brown Ave towards Goffs Falls Road and requested additional units due to structures in the area. Engine 6, Engine 9, Forestry 1, and Squad 1 responded to the scene and contained the fire within 20 minutes. Rescue 1 was later called to the scene due to a tree with fire running through it that would need to be cut down.
