ROCHESTER — Authorities closed a part of Academy Road Tuesday afternoon as fire crews put out a brush fire that was burning nearby, according to Sgt. Scott Litwin of the Racine County Sheriff’s Office.

Police and fire crews were dispatched to the area of 33600 Academy Road at about 1:30 p.m. for a report of a brush fire out of control, according to Litwin.

Academy Road was closed between North Honey Lake Road and North Maple Lane for about two hours from 2-4 p.m., Litwin and Racine County Dispatch confirmed.

The fire burned through about an acre of land and damaged some trees, information which Litwin said was passed on to the property owner. He said no other property was damaged and the fire never reached the road.
