DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- It was a busy Monday for volunteer firefighters in several Dutchess municipalities -- responding to multiple car accidents, a minor fire at a high school and a brush fire.

Firefighters from Millerton, Amenia and Wassaic were called to a bathroom fire at Webutuck High School, 194 Height Road, about 1 p.m. That incident turned out to be a small fire contained to a roll of toilet paper in a bathroom at the high school. It sent smoke through the school but was immediately contained. No one was reported hurt.

Separately, firefighters in the LaGrange Fire District were called to a collision involving a car and dump truck about 1:45 p.m. on Monday. That accident occurred at 1202 State Route 55. Capt. John Watterson, a spokesman for the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office, said the accident resulted in minor injuries.

Finally, firefighters in Pawling were called to a brush fire at South Quaker and Birch Hill roads about 2 p.m.
