Brush fire hits Orchard Park

Payroll tax calendar of the day:  Monthy deposits are due July 15th; quarterly returns are due July 31st.

Last week, while attending a class at the old Twin Fair Plaza (any other old timers like me who remember Twin Fair?), we were told to evacuate the building.  Outside, we could see smoke coming from the next office in the plaza.   A few of us walked over to see what was burning, and it was a bush in one of the planting islands in front of the buildings.

The islands had bushes and flowers covered with wooden mulch, and the bottom front half of one of the bushes was burning as well as the mulch around it.  As best anyone could figure, someone must have tossed a butt into the mulch which ignited and then spread to the bush above.

Unfortunately, my phone doesn’t take pictures; that charred bush looked really sad.  It was a breezy day so everyone was lucky that the fire didn’t spread to the building.

Everyone please be careful and don’t be a noodlehead with fire!
