Cigarette may have caused grass firePublished 10:26pm Friday, March 15, 2013
Suffolk Fire and Rescue’s Engine 5 responded to a small grass fire opposite Creekside Elementary School shortly after 3 p.m. Friday.
The situation in Champions Park, on the corner of Huntclub Chase and Bennetts Creek Park Road, was brought under control within a couple of minutes, after about 1,000 square feet was burned.
Fire Capt. John Gray said a cigarette butt probably caused the blaze, which didn’t appear to have damaged park facilities.
