‘Fan­tas­tic job’

The Glengarry News - - News -

The North Glen­garry Fire Depart­ment is be­ing praised for its fast, ef­fec­tive and clean ser­vice af­ter mem­bers quickly ex­tin­guished a chim­ney fire Satur­day night. “They did a fan­tas­tic job, and there was no resid­ual dam­age,” say An­gel Road res­i­dents Joan and Richard Bur­ton, who were im­pressed by the work of the Ap­ple Hill, Maxville and Alexan­dria fire­fight­ers who han­dled the fire that broke out at about 9:30 p.m.

“It was amaz­ing how quick they got here,” says Mr. Bur­ton whose home is lo­cated about 600 feet from the pub­lic road. “The Ap­ple Hill fire­fight­ers were here in ten min­utes.” The fire­fight­ers quickly re­moved a burn­ing log from the house. “You wouldn’t even know they were here,” says Mr. Bur­ton.

The cause of the fire was a build-up of cre­osote.
