The Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department had a busy day yesterday. They extinguished a car fire on Route 7 in Wilton and then responded to a brush fire on Beeholm Road in Redding. Georgetown firefighters found a fully involved barn fire with the brush fire approaching two nearby homes. Mutual aid was activated from West Redding, Redding, Ridgefield, Bethel, and Weston fire departments. Crews stretched a line to knock down the barn fire and another line to stop the brush fire that was approaching one house. Other members used fire extinguishers and rakes to stop the spread of the brush fire that was approaching another house and starting to catch the back porch on fire. The barn was a total loss, but both houses were saved.
