Fire destroys Brussel home and the family escapes

By Terry Kovarik


Investigators are trying to find the cause of an early morning fire that destroyed a historic brick home in Brussels. The house is located on Highway DK just across from the Belgian Historic Center. The Brussels Union Gardner Fire Department was aided by the Southern Door Fire Department in putting out the fire. The top floor collapsed into the ground floor. A man and a girl inside the home escaped without injury while a woman and a teenage girl were away at the time. The fire broke out around 4:00 this morning. Geneva McIntyre lives at the home and spent the night at a friend’s when her mother called.





A family dog and cat also escaped the fire while two other cats did not. Neighbors immediately began helping the family, which is also getting assistance from the Red Cross.
