Union Fire destroys car, damages home

 A car in the town of Union is a complete loss after it became engulfed in flames Wednesday evening. Crews from the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department reported to the scene on Tru-Way Road between County Road X and Swamp Road around 6 p.m. after the homeowner called 911 to report his car had caught on fire. While some firefighters concentrated their efforts on putting out the blaze, others turned their focus to the nearby mobile home and steel building to prevent further heat damage. No exact cause has been determined, but B.U.G. Fire Chief Curt Vandertie suggests the fire could be linked to work the owner was doing on the car earlier in the evening.

The owner was able to move two other nearby cars before the fire got out of control, preventing other possible property damage. No injuries were reported and the investigation will continue Thursday morning.
