Dry and windy conditions helped caused brush fires in Orange County Thursday.
Fire officials say fames broke out around 1:15 p.m. in Osseo Park, near Lakes Road, in the Town of Monroe.
The Mombasha Fire Department, which shared video on their Facebook page, was called in for mutual aid.
The cause of the fire has not been released yet, but fire officials did ask people yesterday afternoon not to burn things outside because of the windy conditions.
In fact, the Mombasha Fire Department said Western Orange County volunteer firefighters were also dealing with two other large brush fires at the time.
