LAKEVILLE, Mass. (WPRI) — Crews were busy Thursday afternoon battling a brush fire along Route 140 in Lakeville.

Possibly making matters worse for firefighters – strong wind gusts. The entire area is currently under a High Wind Warning, with gusts of up to 60 mph possible.

“Once it crested the little hill, the wind took the flames and it was approaching on houses and garages and things like that,” said Chief Daniel Hopkins of the Lakeville Fire Department.

Below is video of the brush fire sent into ReportIt from Elly Pires.
