Nearly 60 firefighters from York and Lancaster counties battled a brush fire on Dark Hollow Road for a little over two hours Sunday.

According to Hellam Township Fire Chief Eric Strittmatter, the blaze started from a small pile of wood stove ash and spread to a nearby woods. The blaze burned about 2½ acres before being brought under control. 

Because of the remote area of the fire, tanker trucks from at least seven departments shuttled water from a fill site in Wrightsville to the scene. 

There were no injuries.

The fire was one of at least six reported brush fires in York County on Sunday. There are currently no hazardous outlooks, including fire risk, for the area.
