EAST BROOKFIELD, Mass. — A little excitement occurred Saturday night for the town's fire department. Chief Peter Livermore told selectmen Monday that one of the batteries in Engine Number 1 "blew up." The unit is equipped with four batteries.
"I think there was a short circuit and it arced," the chief said.
