A small fire broke out in the Wellesley Town Forest near Longfellow Pond last week. The fire department determined it was likely set by a lit cigarette that was thrown into the woods.
The NRC would like to get the word out that with the warm summer temperatures and very dry conditions, residents need to use care when enjoying the town’s open spaces. All cigarettes, trash and debris must be disposed of properly to help protect our town’s natural resources.
