There was some OSB board in the attic, that is usually a fire stop, but OSB board burns, so the fire had made its way through it, and was headed down the length of the building,” Said Brewer Fire Department’s Assistant Chief, Chris Dore. “So once we got ahead of of it we were able to cut it off and stop it.
