Double play for Egg Harbor Firefighters

The Egg Harbor Fire Department was kept busy with a pair of blazes still under investigation on Wednesday.

 

A little after 11 a.m., firefighters headed to a trailer fire on West Carlsville Road where they found it fully engulfed. Egg Harbor Fire Chief Andy Staats said it appears it started in a back bedroom but no cause has been determined. The home’s residents were not at home at the time of the fire. Two of their cats died while the residents’ dogs were able to escape.

 

 

As they were wrapping up the scene there, firefighters had to travel to a field near Fairview Road where a bailer caught on fire and subsequently started parts of the field on fire as well. Faulty equipment could be to blame, but Staats said no exact cause was determined.

 

 

Over 12,000 gallons of water were used between the two fires and Staats is happy for their mutual aid partners.

Fire Departments in Sister Bay/Liberty Grove, Ephraim, Gibraltar, Jacksonport, Baileys Harbor, and Sturgeon Bay all assisted in Egg Harbor’s efforts over the course of several hours.
