DEC deals with multiple recent wildfires in New York state

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation says a recent fire at Moreau State Park was one of more than a dozen wildfires across New York state.

DEC says from May 13 to May 16, forest rangers responded to a fire that burned more than 16 acres at Moreau State Park.

Rangers were joined by more than 100 firefighters from 16 fire departments.

Among the techniques to help control the blaze was the use of a bulldozer to create a fire line.
