CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said a roadway in the Perry Township area was closed Thursday morning because of brush fire activity.

The closure was initially reported at around 8 a.m. on South Ridge Road near the Lane Road intersection.

It’s not known at this time how significant the brush fire is.

Thursday’s incident is at least the second wildfire in consecutive days that crews in Lake County were dispatched to extinguish.

Separate wildfires broke out early Wednesday morning near the border with Mentor and Painesville.

Ohio officials said there was a “high fire risk” across the state on Wednesday due to the high winds and low humidity.
