Fire Damages Reservoir Road Home
By John T. Ryan
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.
