Volunteer firefighters on the scene of a yard fire at 62 Washington Street in Red Bank Sunday night. Fire Chief Tommy Welsh tells redbankgreen the fire, reported at around 7:30 p.m., burned a wooden fence, apparently after a discarded cigarette ignited some leaves on the ground. The fire was quickly knocked down, with no damage to the house, Welsh said. (Photo by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
