And our number 1 story of the week. Two fires took place over the holidays. On Christmas Eve, a downtown fire above Mr. G’s Saloon resulted in one man being transported to Marshfield Medical Center. Just after Christmas Day, at 2:00am on Tuesday, Marshfield Fire & Rescue responded to a fire on Cedar Avenue. All four residents and six dogs safely exited. In both fires, there were no working smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are required by law and can mean the difference between life and death. Please take a moment to make sure you and your family is safe. Check your detectors. If you need help affording a detector, contact Marshfield Fire & Rescue.
