BUG Fire battles two brush fires within minutes of each other

The Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department did not have to go far to tend to a pair of fires on Saturday afternoon. Just before 2 p.m., crews responded to a brush fire in the area of South Stevenson Pier Road. They were able to put out that fire in approximately 10 minutes. They were paged to a second brush fire on a different part of South Stevenson Pier Road. Approximately 200 yards of ditch burned because the fire crews were able to put it out in approximately 15 minutes with two brush trucks and an engine on the scene. It was the third such fire the department was involved with last week after a discarded cigarette was to blame for a grass fire last Tuesday. Last week’s snow did nothing to calm the threats of fires in Door and Kewaunee counties as they are still listed at a high level for danger. Several nearby counties, like Oconto and Marinette, were downgraded from high to low in the past week.
