Residents, firefighter hospitalized after Green Lake fire

GREEN LAKE (WKOW) — Residents and a firefighter were hospitalized due to heavy smoke after a fire tore through a home early Thursday in Green Lake.

Firefighters were called about 3:30 a.m. for a report of a residential fire at 471 Meadowlark Lane in Green Lake.

Occupants from the residence were able to get out of the home on their own and were taken to Ripon Hospital to be treated because of the heavy smoke, according to a Green Lake Police Department news release.

The resident from the other unit was not home at the time and was located a short time later.

One firefighter also was transported to the hospital for exhaustion type symptoms, and is expected to be O.K.

One Green Lake police officer was treated at the scene for minor smoke inhalation and did not require medical transport.

Both residential units sustained heavy damage due to the fire and the scene remains under investigation at this time.

Fire Departments from the city of Green Lake, town of Brooklyn, city of Berlin and the city of Princeton assisted in the call.

The Fire Departments were also assisted by the Berlin Ambulance Service, along with members of the Green Lake/Brooklyn First Responders and from the City of Green Lake Police Department and the Green Lake County Sheriff’s Department.
