Fire destroys home in Brussels

A Brussels homeowner could use your help after their house was destroyed in a Thursday night fire. The Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department was paged just after 8 p.m. to the home near County Road C and School Road. When they arrived, they found black smoke pouring out of the home and two parts of the home completely engulfed. The homeowner had arrived just a few minutes earlier and was greeted by black smoke as he tried to enter the back door. BUG Fire Chief Curt Vandertie says the initial investigation shows the blaze started in the kitchen and estimates that approximately 75 percent of the home has suffered damage, leaving it inhabitable. He credits the owners of Rouer’s Grand Slam and the rest of the community for already stepping up in the fire’s aftermath.

Investigators and the insurance company were expected to be back at the home Friday after firefighters were cleared from the scene at around midnight. Southern Door, Sturgeon Bay, Luxemburg, and Casco Fire Departments and the Door County Sheriff’s Department provided assistance with the call.
