Fish Creek, Wis. – Two recent fires in Door County, Wisconsin were doused by people making split-second decisions with fire extinguishers. “The impact of those extinguishers was significant,” said Gibraltar Fire Department Chief Andy Bertges. “I don’t think a lot of people realize what was prevented and saved. It’s hundreds of thousands of dollars’ difference and peoples’ livelihoods that were protected. I think it’s just amazing.”
