A late afternoon Tuesday fire in the town of Brussels destroyed a barn and equipment stored inside. BUG Assistant Fire Chief James Wautier says his department responded to the property of Dale and Sue Crass at 8878 School Road in the Town of Brussels. The barn was engulfed in flames when the firefighters arrived. He describes the scene that required mutual aid from the Southern Door, Algoma, Luxemburg, Sturgeon Bay and Casco Fire Departments.
The family lost two horses and pet cats in the fire. Three horses were successfully rescued from the barn. Firefighters battled the blaze for five hours before extinguishing it. No firefighters were injured and no damage was caused to the surrounding property. Property owner Sue Crass provided the photo attached to this article.
