Kohls And TJ Maxx Evacuated In Fond du Lac Wednesday

Shoppers at Kohls and TJ Maxx needed to be evacuated yesterday, Wednesday, October 4, 2023, after contractors struck a gas line in a vacant building connecting the two stores.

At 12:30 yesterday afternoon, the Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue Department was called to the scene after the gas line was struck. Fire crews were able to get the gas shut off and after Alliant Energy responded to shut off power to the building, they were able to ventilate the two businesses and the vacant building. It is not believed anyone was
feeling ill due to the gas.
