With conditions favorable for brush fires, an aggressive blaze burned on Prospect Hill Sunday afternoon.

A large area was on fire when Waltham firefighters arrived.

An additional truck was summoned to assist, with a feeder line stretching 600 feet.

The cause of the brush fire remains under investigation.
