Norwalk Fire Boat Fights a Fire on Grassy Island 
Last Monday, Norwalk Fire - Marine Engine Co., Engine # 3 (the fire boat company) fought a brush fire on Grassy Island. Grassy is one of the Norwalk owned islands and is open to the public. 

The recent "Red Flag" high fire risk weather may be to blame, but note that cooking & bonfires are only allowed on the beach,well away from the tree line to prevent this sort of fire. The islands are also "carry in - carry out" with no trash receptacles available.
