SALEM TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — Someone tried to take the “fun” out of a fire company’s biggest fundraiser.

The President of the Salem Township Fire Department in Luzerne County told Eyewitness News that someone dumped trash and stole items from the Beach Haven Fairgrounds.

Chris Domanski said a pile of wood scraps and a car hood had to be cleaned up.

He also had to call the gas company to repair the tanks and shell out the cash for an unexpected bill.

“It didn’t set us back too far,” said Domanski.  “But it was enough to cause some heartache.”
