Vehicle fire in Baileys Harbor

Just after 8 AM Friday, Baileys Harbor Fire Department received a call about a vehicle fire near St. Mary’s Catholic Church on State Highway 57. Personnel from Ephraim and Gibraltar also responded. Assistant Chief Eric Peil says that the car was fully engulfed when he got to the scene, to the point it was difficult even to get a make and model of the vehicle. It was isolated in the middle of the parking lot, away from any structures that could potentially catch fire themselves. The car belonged to a parishioner attending morning mass. He had driven the car only a half-hour before. Peil says the departments used several methods to extinguish the blaze.


The area was cleared in under two hours.
