A wildfire consumed 32 acres of land belonging to the Worcester Wreath Company, forcing the cancellation of Sunday’s show at the Balsam Valley Amphitheater.

The fire started at around noon on Thursday, ignited by a spark from a woodsman’s brush saw. The area hasn’t seen a lot of rain so conditions are dry. And yesterday’s wind just prolonged the fire, spreading it rapidly.

Owner Morrill Worcester said in a media release that the fire was contained and didn’t consume any forest land that was due to be harvested this year, so the fire won’t impact this season’s Wreaths Across America Trek. In addition, it didn’t affect any of the remembrance trees and no one was hurt in the blaze. The Worcester Family issued the following statement:

“From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to all the volunteers and first responders putting themselves in harms way. This land and trees serve a great mission that we so many care deeply for.”

The fire has, however, caused company officials to cancel Sunday’s show at the Balsam Valley Amphitheatre, since the fire was on land located behind the venue. In addition, organizers are concerned about rain on Sunday.

Refunds are being given for tickets to the Sawyer Brown show. Folks should return to the location where they bought the tickets to claim their refund.
