Just over an hour after the fire at Boniffero Mill Works, Sault Fire Services were called to reports of a brush fire downtown.

Upon arrival in the brush area behind Arthurs Funeral Home, a small fire was encountered. It appears as though a tire was the main source for the blaze, which has then spread into surrounding grass.

Three firefighters from pumper 4 were able to contain and extinguish the fire in a relatively quick manner. They remained on scene for just over 30 minutes putting out hotspots and wetting down the area.
