  • 0

QUEEN ANNE — A brush fire truck and rescue vehicle from the Queen Anne-Hillsboro Volunteer Fire Company responded to a small brush fire 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 18, when a tractor downed a power line.

The call came from the Maryland Department of Natural Resources offices at 3001 Starr Road. There were no injuries reported, and the tractor was not damaged, but the wooden power pole was completely toppled over.

The fire burned an area an estimated at 30 by 50 feet, but it was quickly contained. Surrounding areas did suffer temporary loss of power.
