Tuesday night at 6:46 PM, Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department was called out to Washington Island to assist the volunteer department there with a chimney fire. Also responding were Baileys Harbor, Ephraim, Gibraltar, and the Jacksonport Departments. The Washington Island Ferry was used to transport an aerial truck from the mainland to the island which was a unique logistical hurdle. That truck, Ladder 22, replaced a vehicle that was then sold to Washington Island Fire. It was fitting that the two trucks worked side-by-side on this call.
Crews were able to return home at 11:24 PM.
