A permitted fire got out of control on Sagamore Street on Friday afternoon, according to Fire Chief Philip Stevens.
The fire department responded to 175 Sagamore St. at about 2:30 p.m. In addition to Hamilton firefighters, Essex Engine 1 also helped battle the fire. Firefighters also got help from a Hamilton DPW backhoe. In addition to the brush, the fire also damaged a shed on the property, Stevens said.
Firefighters used water from the fire hydrant on Sagamore Street near Blueberry Lane, which may cause some brown water in the area.
