On Saturday, November 7, 2020, the Belleville Fire Department was called to an address on Exeter Crossing Road. An investigation determined that the fire was started by a truck idling in tall grass and ignited the grass, which quickly spread into several rows of round bales. The fire damaged or destroyed approximately 100 large round bales of hay and corn fodder. There were no injuries. New Glarus, Monticello and Brooklyn Fire Departments as well as Belleville EMS assisted at the scene.
