Crews found approximately .5 acre on fire in between two residences involving a shed. Personnel operated multiple hand lines while working to ensure the fire was contained prior to spreading to the nearby residences.

Two brush trucks from Bay District Volunteer Fire Department along with an engine and tanker from Leonardtown Volunteer Fire Department assisted with personnel from Hollywood.

Units operated for 1.5 hours and the scene was turned over to the Maryland Department of Forestry for further assessment.

Chief 7 (Rogers) held the Hollywood command.
