Peru – The Peru Volunteer Fire Department extinguished a dangerous brush and shed fire at 39 Reservoir Road this afternoon. The flames damaged the rear wall and deck of the large manufactured home. Property owner Joelynn Stickney used a fire extinguisher to douse most of the deck flames prior to the department’s arrival. The firefighters subdued the fire around the home, sprayed foam to ensure there wasn’t a restart, saved the nearby shed and kept the fire from advancing through the woods to a nearby home.

Deputy Clinton County Fire Coordinator, Greg Timmons said there was at least one and possibly more other brush fires ongoing in other local communities.

Outdoor burning is prohibited in New York State from March 16 through May 14 due to the increased risk of wildfires.
