Sun, Apr 12, 2015
Berlin Fire Company responded to an outside fire caused by a controlled burn that spread into the brush and marsh area near a dock due to windy conditions. We want to remind everyone to use extreme caution when open burning. It only takes a small amount of wind for a spark to ignite unintended materials.
