Imagine having to battle a fire in yesterday’s 40 plus humidex…The Moncton Fire Department got called out to fight a fire in Berry Mills at around suppertime yesterday. Nobody was in the house at the time but the Times & Transcript is reporting that two of the residents were in the pool out back! The house was completely destroyed but Moncton Firefighters stopped the fire from spreading to any of the other homes nearby…this was in the area of the 128 and Christie Road.
