firefighters remove burnt materials from a workshop

Deerfield, Mass. – Quick thinking and a pair of fire extinguishers saved a Massachusetts workshop from major damage when a recent fire broke out. The owner of Pioneer Gardens in Deerfield noticed smoke before he and a co-worker grabbed two fire extinguishers that they used to knock down a fire in the workshop. While firefighters arrived to find smoke exiting the building, the fire was already out. Deerfield Fire District Captain Ben Clark said the incident is a great example of why it is important to have fire extinguishers readily available. “It always pays to have a fire extinguisher,” said Clark.
