A major brush fire erupted on Schoolhouse Road shortly after 6pm Monday as red flag conditions continue for the area. A red flag warning means the air is extremely dry, coupled with very dry ground conditions. It appears that most of the fire has been burning itself out but it is spread out over a very large area. I was able to see the fire from downtown Bridgeport and tracked it from the billowing smoke. Mutual aid from all over has been assisting Milford Fire Department as they continue to battle the flames.
