    Someone damaged the fields at Oxford High School after the fireworks went off at the Quaker Farms Volunteer Fire Company’s annual carnival Thursday and the fire company said it will cost more than the carnival brought in to repair it.

    The volunteer fire company said it is responsible for maintaining the grounds for use of the school. 

    “Every year, the members of QFFC work our tails off to run this carnival for the people of our town,” the Facebook post says.

    After the fireworks ended Thursday night, someone destroyed the back field, now the volunteer organization is responsible for fixing the damage and said it will cost QFFC more money to re-sod the field than it made in profit for the entire carnival. 

    “This is extremely disheartening and disappointing to say the least,” the Facebook post says. 

    Fire officials are asking anyone with information to contact the fire department, police or approach fire officials at the carnival cook tent.
