North Reading firefighters extinguished a brush fire near Kings Row on Monday.

Firefighters responded to the area behind 22 Kings Row at 4:45 p.m. Monday. They found about 1-2 acres was on fire and spreading rapidly in all directions, according to North Reading Firefighters Local 1857.

A box alarm was struck, which brought in off-duty fire personnel to assist. Engines 1, 4 and 6 and C1 and C2 worked on the fire. They also called in Middleton Engine 6 and Wilmington Squad 1 to help because of the rapid spread of the fire and hilly terrain. A DPW employee also assisted and Rehab Fire provided rehab services for firefighters, according to North Reading Firefighters Local 1857.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the brush fire about two hours after the initial call.

The cause of the fire was a camp fire that got out of control.

There were no reported injuries.
