FDL Man Sent To Hospital After Fireworks Explode In Garage

The weekend started with a bang for one Fond du Lac resident. Fond du Lac Police were called to Amory St. early Saturday morning, just before 1:00 a.m. for a report of 3 loud shots being heard in the area. The caller stated she had seen three bright flashes and then the loud “bangs” that followed. Upon investigation, Police determined a 44-year old male at the residence was welding in the garage, when the sparks from the welding ignited fireworks that were in a crate in the garage. The male was complaining of head pain, and was transported by EMS for treatment. There were no further details given as to the extent of the injuries, if any.
