Published on July 21, 2014

A waterbomber and forestry firefighters were on the scene of a brush fire Monday afternoon near Red Bridge Road in Conception Bay south.

The fire burned an area of trees and low brush where it is reported a similar fire started Sunday due to fireworks being set off in the area.

The province has now banned outdoor open fires and fireworks until further notice.

Two other brush fires Monday occurred off Thorburn Road and in the Shea Heights area of St. John's.
