OSWEGO, NY – A witness called 911 after seeing two or three juveniles set fire to a pile of mulch in a vacant lot of the former Fitzgibbon’s Boiler Works site Sunday afternoon.
Shortly after 4 p.m., officials on the scene reported finding a mulch pile, 20′ in diameter and 10′ high, burning on all sides.
In order to fully extinguish the fire, the mulch pile had to be spread out with a bobcat, then doused with water.
Oswego Fire Department personnel were in service after about 30 minutes.
No injuries were reported.
