A Thursday morning fire in the town of Nasewaupee destroyed a couple’s mobile home and took the lives of their five pets. Southern Door Fire Chief Chuck Cihlar says his department responded to 2276 County Road O and arrived to find the trailer home engulfed in flames. He described the scene that required mutual aid from the Sturgeon Bay and Bug Fire Departments.
The cause of the fire is unclear at this time. The owner of the home detected nothing unusual when he left for work at 6:00 but his wife was awakened by a smoke detector a couple of hours later. The frigid temperatures created challenges but none of the firefighters were injured. Red Cross and EMS workers provided assistance to the firefighters and residents at the scene.
