At least three fire vehicles attended the scene with approximately 10 firefighters, and the blaze was extinguished at around 8.00pm.

Fire Service spokesperson Sergeant Russann Francis said, “The Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service responded to the mentioned incident with four fire appliances staffed with fourteen firefighters.

“Fire crews took approximately 8 minutes to arrive on scene. Upon their arrival they discovered a large area of brush approximately 100’ x 40’ fully involved in fire. They proceeded to fight the fire for just under an hour using 2 ½” and 1 ½” hose lines to extinguish the blaze.”

    This golf course should never have been closed down,we all know who is to blame for that!

  5. We / Bermuda had been extremely fortunate having had that fire, “up in de’ bushes” and not in the Olde Historical Towne of St. Georges :-(
    Remember, we have NO fire trucks on that side of the bridge to respond within seconds!This must be dealt with before we lose the irreplaceable treasures of St. George.

      Mr. Ray:

      I am now convinced that you are an “alarmist” – - you shout fire in a room before there is even any smell of smoke.

      “This must be dealt with before we lose the irreplaceable treasures of St. George.” – - really, sir?

      No fire or any other emergency in Bermuda can be dealt with within seconds – that concept is laughable.

      Stop fueling the fires in our community with your divisive rhetoric.

      • @ #33 Area Voter: I believe “an oz. of prevention can be a lb. of cure” and in reality, I am not that “alarmist” you believe me to be :-(
