Brush Fire off of Gores Mill Road

Last night at approximately 6pm a Maryland State Trooper helicopter (Trooper 3) was flying over the Reisterstown area and spotted a 1/2 acre brush fire off of Gores Mill Road.  Station 41 was alerted for an engine response.  The incident quickly escalated due to the size of the brush fire (which was estimated to be 2-3 acres later in the incident).  In the end 11 engines from Baltimore and Carroll counties were dispatched along with numerous brush trucks and Baltimore County rehab units.  Crews were there for just over 3 hours to put the fire out and then cool the hot spots.
