Hayway Road
Wednesday March 21, 2012

A mid afternoon brush fire in the woods off Hayway Road in Falmouth burned an estimated
6 - 10 acres before being brought under control by brush breakers. The dry conditions and
unusually warm weather, along with a good southwest breeze provided ideal conditions
for the fire to travel quickly. Mutual aid from Mashpee, Bourne, and MMR brought
5 additional brush breakers to assist 3 Falmouth brush breakers extinguishing the fire.
A significant plume of smoke filled the air and drifted across the mid Cape area
towards West Barnstable.

Ever see that video where you stare at the bouncing basket ball and never see the black bear
walk across the screen.... Never saw the bear or the owl... too funny!
