Small Fire At Mercury Marine

Fond du Lac firefighters were called to Mercury Marine’s Plant 15 for a report of a small fire in an overhead heating unit this morning. Division Chief of Fire Prevention Troy Haase says the time of the call was about 6:40 a.m. He says Mercury workers used a fire extinguisher to put the fire out and firefighters made sure it was out when they arrived. He says no one had to be evacuated because the fire happened around a shift change. Haase says there was some possible damage to the heating unit. Fond du Lac Fire Department photo.
