Fire destroys wooden structure in Pottersville

A fire destroyed a wooden structure in Pottersville on Thursday afternoon.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

DNO understands the destroyed structure  was constructed of wooden pallets. It was located close to a DOWASCO treatment plant in the area. It is unknown whether it was inhabited at the time of the blaze.

The fire department was called but by the time fire trucks arrived, the structure was completely consumed by the flames.

No one was hurt.

    On another note, why does the firemen hose have to have sooooo many holes? A fire was being put out in my area once and every 5 ft there’s a hole in the hose

    Why does the town council allow fire hazards like these to be constructed in the first place?
    It is not only a danger, but very ugly and unsightly and a breeding ground for all kinds of vermin. Madam Mayor do your job please! I was very hopeful when you were appointed but sad to note that you have fallen silent and inert. Remember, you represent the town first and not the government and be prepared to battle them if you have to.

      first you find someone to blame did you question how often they ask people not to build these trap and yet they do and even squatting they have no regard for others safety, so don\’t jump the gun and blame the mayor.

      Nothing wrong in having a pallet wooden house, since back in the days the majority of us grew up in little two by two, and sooner or later this is what many of us will be doing again when skerrit bank take possession of our concrete mansions since many of us loose our jobs, and cannot afford to pay our mortgages ànd feed our children and families, they find too many of us have bbig concrete houses, cars etc, though some of us struggle, work hard and sweat for what we have skerrit and his boys deny us jobs so that we can conrinue paying our mortgages for which they past their bill for their banks in the caribbean to throw us out on the street, so here it is many of us will have to find somewhere to rest our heads instead of being homeless we will have to build wooden pallet shanty houses, we will be going back many steps backwards insttead of forward, for it is said that as it was in the beginning so shall it be at the end and all these too shall come to pasd

        Glenda I am so sorry if I offended you,i was just taken back by the structure thing,it had me imagining someone using pallets to knock up a shanty or shack structure,and hey to be quite frank with you,only a parro would do that,and using candles or a buzzie for electricity,and that caused the fire,i do not know your what sentimentation leading to,but if you depending on government personals to make your life an interesting one,go ahead build your pallet structure,because I am sure that you are also familiar with the saying,when one door is closed,many more is opened,have a fruitful life,god is also your father to,so I do not what you telling me about people and governments are a threat to your living,they do not bother me,so why should they bother you to,unless your whole life is surrounded by politics,be blessed
