Baseball, a fire donation and a structure fire that wasn't

It's been a pretty quiet few weeks for photos in cottage country. On a sunny Thursday afternoon, I dropped by Peake Fields, where Brad Bissell of the Barrie Baycats led a special camp for local baseball players.

Following that, there was a fire call on Hiram Street. It came in as a structure fire and dispatched crews from two stations. Turns out someone had left a pot on the stove.

A few days after that, firefighters from Wellington North dropped by the Dominion Street fire hall to pick up some old equipment that the Bracebridge Fire Department was giving away to their fellow firefighters in Sandy Lake, a remote northern Ontario community. Sandy Lake's firefighters apparently have to make do with damaged and outdated equipment, old bunker gear and even a hand-pump jaws of life.
