A burning debris pile was quickly snuffed in Vernon Tuesday morning.
Vernon Fire Rescue crews responded to reports of black smoke coming from the area behind the Polson Place Mall around 8:15 a.m. May 10, according to city communications manager Christy Poirier.
Upon arrival, firefighters found piles of debris burning near the train tracks, and an effort to extinguish them had already begun.
“Area bystanders were working to put them out,” Poirier said.
The firefighters were able to quickly pull a line and finish off the blaze.
No injuries came as a result of the fire and no structures were at risk.
