Fire scorched a wooded area near Imperial Avenue and Harbor View Road in Westport on Thursday evening.
When firefighters from Engine Co. 2 arrived at the scene, an area of about 25 square feet in the woods was in flames at the top of the hill.
The blaze was quickly doused, and the area surrounded the fire scene was wetted down to prevent it from re-kindling.
Although the official cause of the fire has not been determined, tree crews had been cutting wood in the area, according to fire officials.
