Six Suffolk County fire departments responded to separate brush fires that broke out in Manorville and Coram Friday, a day in which the National Weather Service said there was an elevated risk for the spread of such incidents.
Fire departments from Manorville, East Moriches and Eastport responded to a brush fire at Manorville Hills County Park at 12:34 p.m., Suffolk County fire officials said. That was extinguished by late afternoon, officials said.
A Suffolk County police spokeswoman said the department's aviation crew had been notified about the brush fire at the county park but had no other information.
Fire officials also had no immediate information on the size or strength of the fires.
The National Weather Service said Friday that dry spring weather, low humidity and dry ground cover, including branches and leaves, could provide an elevated risk to the spread of brush fires Friday through Sunday.
