Brookfield Volunteer Fire Department Candlewood Company is providing more details about an incident last Sunday about the search for a boat in distress with a potentially severe thunderstorm approaching.  Danbury Fire Department called on Candlewood Company for mutual aid last Sunday around 9pm on a report of multiple people on board near Deer Island.  Marine 25 was deployed a day before it was officially scheduled to go into service, but members had been training with the vessel and were ready for any fire and rescue calls on the lake.  Emergency responders came upon two boaters who said they towed a vessel to a dock near Sherman.  The boat was located and confirmed they no longer needed emergency assistance.
