A brush fire covering more than 25 acres at the edge of Jugtown Forest in Naples has been contained, according to Naples Fire and Rescue.

Naples Fire, with help from about a dozen other fire and mutual aid departments, closed in on the fire hours after first announcing it Sunday afternoon.

Crews planned to work at the scene into Sunday evening to address flareups.

Because of the dry conditions and limited manpower in the area, all burning permits in Naples have been suspended and none will be issued until Tuesday.

A dispatcher for the Casco Fire Department said Sunday no homes were threatened by the fire.

Jugtown Forest is owned and maintained by Hancock Land Co., which has 5,000 acres and a network of the trail system in the forest in Casco, Naples and Otisfield, according to the land company.

Much of the southern and central part of Maine is experiencing abnormally dry conditions, according to the National Weather Service.
