Brandstaette (or instead of ae an a with an umlaut--my computer's not cooperating right now or else I'd have made an umlaut) is German for the scene of a fire. There's no English equivalent for a German umlaut a but it would sound similar to a short e. My guess is Brandstaetter would mean someone who was at the scene of a fire.
