Firefighters tap canal to help douse blaze
ALBION – I wondered what would happen if the village ran out of water trying to put out the massive fire today. I know we have a 3-million-gallon storage tank on routes 31A and 98 in Barre, and other smaller storage facilities.
But could that supply could get exhausted trying to put out the big fire? I asked one of the firefighters if that was a concern, running out of water, and he pointed to a long fire hose than ran to the Erie Canal. We don’t need to worry about running out of water.
