Fox Lake Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from the DailyHerald.com:

A teen may have spent hours injured inside a rolled over car after it crashed in an unincorporated area near Round Lake sometime Monday, fire officials said.

A Lake County sheriff’s deputy discovered the car on its roof in dense brush just before 2 p.m. off Wilson Road just south of Route 120. Police believe the car was traveling north on Wilson Road when it left the roadway, struck a sign, a utility pole and at least one tree before coming to rest upside down and barely visible from the road.

Fox Lake Fire Protection District firefighters found the car 40 to 50 yards from the roadway, on an embankment about 20 feet above Wilson Road and very unstable.

“We found a youth driver that was last seen at about 6 a.m. and didn’t show up for school this morning,” he said. “He was conscious and talking to us. We did have a lengthy extrication of about 20 to 25 minutes.”

The driver, 17, was taken to Fox Lake’s Molidor Road fire station where Flight for Life was waiting to airlift him to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with life threatening injuries.

5-Alarm fire in Salem, WI – 6-8-16

Excerpts from Fox6now.com:

Fifteen fire departments were called to the scene of a five-alarm fire on Wilmot Road in Salem (WI) on Wednesday, June 8th. More than 52,000 gallons of water had to be used to bring that fire under control. The building where it happened is a total loss after the blaze.

There are no hydrants in the area, so firefighters had to bring water to the scene. Water from the lake had to be utilized when the water level in Salem’s water tower became alarmingly low. Officials say if it had gotten any lower, the town’s water supply would have been threatened. That went on for about four hours until this fire was finally brought under control. The fire was contained to just the one building which has about 10 units. The building is a total loss. One firefighter was taken to the hospital for treatment of possible heat exhaustion — but no one else was hurt.
