SAUGUS — Dry and windy weather conditions are making local communities prone to brush fires, and the Saugus Fire Department is cautioning residents to be aware of their actions.

Fire Chief Donald McQuaid said Saugus had quite a few brush fires in the last week, including two on Thursday. Firefighters responded to what turned out to be a “brush and mulch” fire near Hannaford’s off of Route 1 around 3 p.m., and then again at 4:46 p.m. to the Golden Hills playground area. Another brush fire occurred in Salem off of Highland Avenue behind Walmart Thursday.
