MAYFIELD -- The Mayfield Volunteer Fire Department got help from five other departments in battling a massive forest fire off of Berry Road Tuesday.
Fire Chief Phlan Hart said the fire was not suspicious and no injuries were reported.
Hart said around 2 p.m., he investigated an area about a quarter of a mile off of Berry Road where he saw a large amount of smoke.
The fire spread approximately 4 acres, and took four hours to control.
"It was a good one," Hart said.
Hart said five other departments responded to the scene, including Broadalbin-Kennyetto Volunteer Fire Department, Berkshire Fire District, Northville Volunteer Fire Department, Meco Volunteer Fire Company, Pleasant Square Fire Department. Edinburgh Volunteer Fire Company was on standby.
Three members from Fulton County fire coordinator's office also assisted in putting out the forest fire.
Hart said the departments found the rough area where they assume the fire started.
The fire came at the heels of the end to the state wide burn ban which concluded May 15.
Hart said state environmental conservation officers investigated the scene. The origin of the fire was determined unknown.
