Fire makes Wellesley North 40 property even hotter topic

Wellesley North 40 FireReader MG late Thursday afternoon sent us a photo of  a fire in the North 40 property area along Weston Road and Rte. 135 that’s been a hot topic of discussion of late because of Wellesley College’s exploration into selling the land and the town’s possible interest in buying it.

It turns out that it was a brush fire over a 1oo x 100 foot area, and Engines 1 and 2 extinguished it, according to  Jeff Peterson, Wellesley’s assistant fire chief.
