Multiple injuries, fireworks keep law enforcement busy

Fireworks were just a small part of the reason law enforcement in Door and Kewaunee Counties stayed busy over the weekend. From July 3rd through July 5th, law enforcement in Door County responded to 28 phone calls related to fireworks while Kewaunee County had five such calls. Door County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says they had to adjust their operations as its dispatch handled over 300 calls.

A professional fireworks company had one of its employees get hurt during a show in Little Sturgeon while Gibraltar Fire and Rescue Chief Andy Bertges told that a display on Chambers Island started a small grass fire that was easily contained. Door County law enforcement also responded to close to 20 accidents and a fight at a Washington Island campground that resulted in one person being stabbed and a couple of other people taken into custody.
