Mulch Fire Safety Information from @NorthAndoverFD

Earlier this afternoon, the NAFD responded to a small mulch fire outside of a home on Middlesex St. Due to the proximity of the mulch to the house, were it not for the quick work of a bystander with a garden hose, the mulch fire could have extended to the home and caused a serious fire. The NAFD wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone to keep mulch at least 18 inches away from the combustible exteriors of homes.  Please visit for more information regarding mulch safety.
