Locked brakes may have led to a snowmobile fire in the Town Of Union Saturday afternoon.
According to the sheriff’s department report released Monday, owner Jay Viste said the snowmobile he was driving began to smoke and he thought the brakes had locked. He was trying to get home and was just north of the residence when he noticed heavy smoke from the snowmobile. He stopped and a short time later the Ski Doo was fully engulfed.
Brussels Union Gardner fire units put out the fire, which destroyed all of the snowmobile except for the metal.
