HOLLAND, Mass. (WWLP) – A brush fire was started by a fallen tree limb that landed on a power line on Pond Bridge Road Monday at 6:30 p.m.

The brush fire grew rapidly and came dangerously close to residents. Holland Fire units focused on the structure while other fire units worked on the brush fire which advanced into the woods due to the wind. A fourth alarm for apparatus and manpower was needed due to the distance into the woods the brush fire traveled.
