The aftermath of a fire earlier this week in the town of Union is serving as a beacon of community pride this holiday season. Since a fire destroyed an apartment complex early Monday morning, local businesses and the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department have been collecting donations and trying to replace what was lost in the blaze. B.U.G. Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says it is just another example of how this community comes together when one or many of their own are in need.
The B.U.G. Fire Department will host a Christmas gathering for the four families affected by the fire at the Brussels Community Center Friday evening beginning at 6:30.
