Additional Information: Green Bay Metro Fire was initially dispatched to the Ken Euers Park on North Military for a brush fire. Due to high winds and dry conditions the fire was advancing rapidly. Battalion Chief 411 used the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) to bring in area departments to assist with extinguishment. Crews were successful in keeping the fire from spreading west along the bay and threatening structures. Crews operated for several hours to put out numerous hot spots. Approx 30 acres burned. Area departments who assisted on scene were Howard, Suamico, Lawrence, Hobart, New Franken, and Bellevue. The DNR also assisted with an airplane for air recon.
