Tassoul credited with heroics during Saturday Fire

A man's life was saved during a fire on Saturday thanks to the efforts of a Sturgeon Bay Police officer.


According to a post by the Sturgeon Bay Police Department, emergency personnel responded to an apartment fire at 903 Alabama Place with heavy smoke and flames billowing out of the building. Upon reports of a disabled man being still inside the building, Sgt. Markus Tassoul of the Sturgeon Bay Police Department went into the building twice to try to locate the man despite the conditions and originally having the wrong apartment number. It was the second try that Tassoul was able to find the man and bring him to safety.


No other information about the fire has been released since the Saturday night blaze occurred. Phone calls to the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department have gone unreturned.
