30 Fatalities From House Fires Reported in WI This Year

The Federal Emergency Management Agency says a total of 30

been three fatal fires in our area in 2019. A woman was killed in a fire in
Fond du Lac on May 19th, a man killed in a fire in Oshkosh on May 4th
and a man was killed in a fire in the Town of Green Lake on February 10th.
Fire officials say to keep that number down, people need to remember basic fire
safety tips – including the importance of having working smoke detectors and to
know and practice your fire escape plan with your family. See more fire safety tips here.
