WILLIAMSON, Pa. - Firefighters from six companies were called out Monday afternoon to battle a brush fire that scorched about three acres at an abandoned distillery Monday afternoon in St. Thomas Township.
"It was going to town. That's why we had to call out the additional brush trucks," St. Thomas Volunteer Fire Co. Chief Tom Bigler said at the scene. The former Seagram's plant is off Bullett Road.
Bigler said the fire was called in at 2:18 p.m. Firefighters were at the scene for about three hours, he said.
According to Bigler, a demolition crew was tearing down buildings at the plant "and I guess they figured they could burn some of the wood up."
