Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue responded to Mercury Marine
just after 10 o’clock this (Thursday) morning for reports of a fire in a dust
collection system. The system was being removed from the building when it
caught fire. Firefighters were able to put the fire out – and it was contained
to the exterior collection system, not endangering the plant or anyone inside.
No injuries were reported and everyone was safely evacuated.
