Grass fire off westbound Thruway, East Pembroke responding

posted by Billie Owens in fire, east pembroke.

A grass fire is reported by a state trooper near mile marker 398.6 on the westbound Thruway. East Pembroke Fire Department is responding.

UPDATE 5:16 p.m.: Pembroke Fire Department is also responding. Firefighters are told to use caution upon approach because there's a disabled vehicle on the Thruway near the grass fire. Traffic is backed up in both lanes.

UPDATE 5:18 p.m.: Pembroke fire chief is on Indian Falls Road and can see the blaze. He says there's a road running next to a corn field and it's possible trucks could go down it to reach the fire. They are going to try that approach and other responders already on the Thruway will continue to the mile marker.

UPDATE 5:28 p.m.: Pembroke command reports the fire is out.
