Brushfire burns in Gardner

A property owner’s spring cleaning  efforts turned into a written warning from the Door County Sheriff’s Department after a brushfire occurred in the town of Gardner. Deputies and members of the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department reported to the scene off of Rocky Shores Drive at around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday after the owners’ efforts to contain the brush fire on their own failed. No injuries occurred, but about a 100-foot by 200-foot area of grass and brush burned as a result. BUG Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says it is a reminder that even though the ground is wet, the vegetation above it could be dry.

Vandertie says the written warning was for not having the proper outdoor burn permit, which is required by most municipalities.
