Camper total loss after fire

A Thursday afternoon fire in the Town Gardner shows the importance of double-checking the electrical connections on your camper before you squeeze in one last trip this fall. The Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department responded to the fire after 1:40 p.m. last Thursday after a camper trailer near County Highway K became fully engulfed. The camper’s owner was on the other side of his building cutting wood when friends and neighbors notified him of what was happening. B.U.G. Assistant Fire Chief Jim Wautier says it appears the issue was due to a power shortage in the camper’s electrical system.

Crews were on the scene for approximately an hour putting out the camper, which Wautier calls a total loss. There were no injuries and no other property damaged during the incident.
