BRUNSWICK - A local fire department is holding a fundraiser this weekend for a man billed for water used to put out the fire that destroyed his home.

As we first told you yesterday, Michael Pietro was billed $1,400 by the Town of Poestenkill.

The fire chiefs from both Brunswick and Poestenkill disagree with the move.

So, the Eagle Mills Fire Department in Brunswick will host a pancake breakfast Sunday morning at 8:00 a.m. to help pay the bill.
