Quick response by the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department Thursday morning prevented a corn field fire in the town of Union from getting out of control. The fire was reported on Lester Road and was contained quickly and did not spread very far, according to BUG Assistant Fire Chief Jim Wautier.
Wautier warns property owners that even with the wetter than normal fall weather, you should be extremely careful when doing any burning outside. October is National Fire Prevention Awareness Month.
