Hot Air Balloon Lands in the Trees

The Fire Department responded to a hot air balloon crash over the weekend.

The Northborough Fire Department had an anything but routine call on Sunday when it responded to a hot air balloon crash.

The balloon got stuck in a tree off East Main Street at 7:58 a.m.

According to Chief David Durgin, the on-duty shift responded in the rescue unit and ambulance one, and located the balloon, which was no longer stuck, on Deacon Street 

There were no injuries.

I think it came down on the Peaslee playing field around 7:30 am too but then got up in the air again.

This is a hot air ballon that floats regularly over Northborough in the summertime, for at least the last ten years in my memory. It landed on our property once. I believe it comes out of Westborough.

We need to track down the owner of this balloon. I think a group from Northborough, and Northborough Patch, should take a ride ... and do a story first hand. Who's with me? And who knows the owner of this balloon?

I agree! I've seen this balloon many times but know nothing about the owners. It landed in the Chet's parking lot on Monday morning...maybe they know something?

I would like to take my mother for a ride for her birthday. Does anyone know how to contact them?
