The Peninsula Fire Department (PFD) was called to a wildfire on the north end of Smokey Hollow Road at about 2:30 p.m. yesterday afternoon. The fire resulted from a tree that had fallen onto a power line, igniting sparks and causing the dry woodland floor to catch fire and quickly spread up the hillside.
Thanks to the quick response from the PFD, assisted by the Traverse City Fire Department, the fire was quickly brought under control, with no injuries to anyone.
