Fire at Summit Park Road Nursery

Volunteers from Hillcrest and Thiells fire departments responded to a call on Thursday at the former Matterhorn Nursery on Summit Park Road. Officials stated that around 10:00 AM firefighters arrived at the scene to find a 10×50 foot mulch, woodchip, and lumber pile on fire and used about 10,000 gallons of water to contain the smoke and flames within an hour and a half. The nursery closed in 2012 and was most recently used as a umping ground by Perfect Cut Tree Service, though a new owner purchased 20-acres of the property last month. The cause of the fire is not known at this time and no injuries were reported.
