Sprinkler System Contains Fire At Mercury Marine

Wednesday nigth at 11:23 p.m., Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue responded to Mercury Marine Plant 98 for a report of a fire in the dust collector inside the structure. Upon arrival crews found moderate smoke showing. The sprinkler system activated and kept the fire in check until crews were able to enter the structure and extinguish the fire. Fire was contained to the area of the dust collection system. Access to the dust collector was limited, so overhaul was time consuming. There were no injuries to Mercury employees or responding fire/rescue crews. Firefighters were on the scene for about an hour and a half. Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue photo.
