October 28, 2016, Liverpool, NS: On the evening of October 27, 2016, residents of Liverpool and surrounding areas reported hearing a loud noise, which caused concern. The noise was the result of the ignition of a controlled burn of excess wood, undertaken by the volunteer fire fighters at the Liverpool Fire Fighters Association. The excess wood was clean construction debris originally intended for fire fighting practice in the Burn Trailer, which was unused due to the Provincial Burn ban in place throughout the summer and early fall. It was a still night, and the sound of the ignition carried far. There was no danger to the residents from this controlled burn; the Liverpool Fire Fighters Association and Region of Queens Municipality regret any concern caused to residents.
