The power lines are a possible cause. A high tension line was down.

HUNTINGTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Huntington firefighters spent part of Thursday night working to control a fire spread over ten and a half acres on Pisgah Road.

The fire started just before 5:00 p.m. Thursday at the end of Pisgah Road.  It was spotted and pinpointed by the Pelham fire tower.

Huntington Deputy Fire Chief Charles Dazelle told 22News the bulk of the fire was mostly under control by 7:15 this evening, but his crews were still putting out smoldering debris, hoping to to keep it from flaring up.

So far, the cause of the fire is unknown, but Deputy Dazelle said the power lines were a possible cause.  He said one of the high tension lines was down, and that Eversource crews were there de-energizing the lines.

Five fire departments worked on the Huntington brush Fire. No one was in the woods at the time, according to Dazelle, and no one was hurt.
