Wood burner source of Brussels fire

The structure housing an outdoor wood burner in Brussels was damaged after it caught fire late Thursday night.


Crews from the Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department were dispatched at approximately 11:40 p.m. to the home on Misere Road in the town of Brussels. Upon arrival, they found that the home’s owner had put out most of the blaze with a garden hose before it started to spread to a nearby woodpile. An exact cause has not been determined, but BUG Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says it was likely a loose ember that started the structure on fire. He added that if it was not for a passerby that alerted the homeowner and the proper authorities, it could have been worse.

A tarp covering the woodpile was also damaged in the fire. Crews from the BUG Fire Department were able to leave just shortly after 12:30 a.m.
