Firefighters were battling several brush fires along Blue Mountain. They were attacking the flames from the ground and the air in Lower Towamensing Township, Carbon County.

At least four similar fires also broke out elsewhere in Carbon and Lehigh Counties.

Officials have not said whether they know the cause.

They say low humidity and little recent rain have made conditions prime for brush fires.
