"Crews were able to quickly contain the fire," according to a Facebook post by SWCCFPD. "This was a fire started by someone from the side of the road."

A natural cover fire in the Macks Creek area of Camden County on Thursday night appeared to have been set intentionally by someone on the side of the road, according to the Southwest Camden County Fire Protection District. 

No injuries or property damage were reported, but first arriving fire crews on Coffee Hollow Road found seven acres of land on fire at approximately 9:45 p.m. on Thursday, December 13, 2017. 

"Crews were able to quickly contain the fire," according to a Facebook post by the department. "This was a fire started by someone from the side of the road." 

SWCCFPD said night fires are particularly hazardous for firefighters due to the unfamiliar terrain. 

"We encourage you to report suspicious activity to the Camden County Sheriff's Office," the post concluded.
