— Ten­drils of smoke sur­round Bay Roberts vol­un­teer fire­fight­ers Kevin Green­land (front) and Robert Sey­mour as they leave the scene of a shed fire in But­lerville last week. The charred lum­ber in the back­ground is what re­mains of the struc­ture, which be­longed to Jerome Sey­mour, af­ter it was com­pletely de­stroyed in the af­ter­noon blaze. The fire started shortly af­ter 3 p.m. on Oct. 3. Of­fi­cials with the Bay Roberts Vol­un­teer Fire Depart­ment said the fire “could have been much worse.” Green­land, Roberts and some 16 other fire per­son­nel kept watch over the charred rub­ble for two hours af­ter the fire had started. No one was hurt in the fire and Jerome’s home es­caped with smoke and wa­ter dam­age.
