A cabin fire on Chambers Island posed many challenges to firefighters on Door County’s mainland. According to Gibraltar Fire & Rescue, two U.S. Coast Guard boats and one private boat were needed to transport fireman and equipment to Chambers Island in order to extinguish the blaze. The fire was reported at about 2:30 Saturday afternoon while the owner and family members were outside the building and someone could smell smoke, according to the Door County Sheriff’s Department. No injuries were reported and the fire remains under investigation. Nine Door County fire departments responded to the fire including the Gibraltar Fire & Rescue Department.
