A Brussels home is considered to be a total loss after an early morning fire on Tuesday. Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department reported to the scene on County XC at around 1:30 a.m. after receiving a call of flames coming out of the roof and heavy smoke. The two families living inside the home were able to escape unharmed as crews were able to save other pets from the blaze. There were some cats still unaccounted for as of 7 a.m. B.U.G. Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says there were no issues fighting the fire.
Fire Departments from Sturgeon Bay, Southern Door, Luxemburg, and Casco along with the Door County Sheriff’s Department and Door County Emergency Services helped contribute to the effort. The Red Cross is on scene helping the two families affected.
