woodruff fire call

Brian Jopek/Lakeland Times

Minocqua firefighter Andrew Alesauskas sprays foam on a propane tank and dry leaves around it as a precautionary measure Nov. 30 during a call to a fire at 7618 East Hasbrook Road in the town of Woodruff. Firefighters from Woodruff, Lake Tomahawk, Minocqua and Arbor Vitae, along with an Oneida County ambulance crew, were called just after noon to the report of what ended up being, essentially, a grass fire put out by Woodruff police officer Bill Nichols, who used a fire extinguisher. Firefighters proceeded to secure the area, making sure there was no more fire in or around the home, which was unoccupied at the time. There was some damage to its front porch and siding, some of which was pulled by firefighters making sure the fire, said to have been caused by hot ashes and embers picked up by the wind from a chimney from the house next door, was out.
