COEYMANS, N.Y. -- Several fire departments responded to a brush fire on Monday morning.
According to officials, it happened on Biers Road in Coeymans Hollow around 6 a.m. When crews arrived, there were more than 12 acres burning in the woods.
Town of Coeymans Police Chief Gregory Darlington said there were several factors that made the fire difficult to battle.
"It was a hike back. I would estimate about a half mile back, straight up on top of the mountain where it is very windy," said Chief Darlington.
He added no one was hurt and nearby houses were not damaged by the brush fire.
