Officers Extinguish Fire On Back Porch Of Residence

Two officers from the City of Fond du Lac Police Department and Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office are being credited for keeping a fire contained to a back porch area of a residence in Fond du Lac yesterday, September 4, 2023.

Just before 5:30 PM a call came into the Fond du Lac County Communication Center reporting a fire on the rear porch in the 200 block of Gillette Street.

The officers from the two departments were nearby and also heard the fire page and responded. The two used their fire extinguishers that they carry in the squads to knock the fire down to almost completely out.

When the fire department arrived, they just had to do a bit of overhaul on the area that was on fire to make sure it was completely out, and make sure the fire didn’t extend to the house.

No details were released on the cause of the fire.
