A brush fire along the Neponset River just upriver from the Granite Avenue bridge around noon brought a BFD fireboat - which then couldn't reach the fire because the bridge turned out to be stuck.
BFD spokesman Steve MacDonald reports it turned out the river near the fire was too shallow for the boat, anyway, and that the fire burned itself out about an hour later.
News that the bridge couldn't get up brought the Coast Guard and the State Police, to try to see what to do about that, because the Coast Guard requires draw bridges to be able to draw.
