Campfire sparks blaze in state forest

LYONSDALE — A campfire that was not quenched correctly led to an almost four-acre fire in the Sand Flats State Forest on July 12, according to a state Department of Environmental Conservation newsletter.

Forest rangers Evans and Piersma answered the call about the fire to find 3.7 acres of the forest’s floor — or “duff” — and “brushy understory” burning at about 10:30 a.m.
