Posted on 02/28/2022
On Saturday, February 27, at 6:00 p.m., the Pleasant Prairie Fire & Rescue Department was alerted to a fire in the vehicle storage garage at the Roger Prange Municipal Center, 8600 Green Bay Road. Units responded and found heavy smoke coming from the southern vehicle storage garage. Once inside the garage, crews found an active fire inside a 2009 snow plow truck. 

Fire & Rescue began accessing the fire to extinguish the flame and get the fire under control. Operations continued, and at 6:24 p.m. Fire & Rescue crews reported the fire was completely out. No civilian or fire personnel injuries were reported. The fire suppression equipment within the garage kept the fire contained and the damage localized to the engine compartment and cab of the Department of Public Works vehicle. 

The cause of the fire is unknown but appeared to centralize in the engine compartment of the plow truck. Fire & Rescue units cleared the scene at 7:04 p.m.
 
Pleasant Prairie was assisted by mutual-aid departments, including Beach Park (IL), Newport Fire District (IL), Winthrop Harbor (IL), and Zion Fire (IL). In addition, both Bristol (WI) and Salem Lakes Fire (WI) provided a change of quarters apparatus for normal daily call response.
