GRAND HAVEN, Mich. – Several fire crews battled a brush fire Friday afternoon along the Grand Haven beach.

Eight departments responded to the fire off of the 13100 block Lakeshore Drive.  It took about two hours for the fire to be put out.

One firefighter from Grand Haven Township was treated for heat exhaustion.  Several homes are in the area, but none suffered any damage.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, but winds were blowing from the water’s edge and crews say that there may have been a campfire on the beach.
