Burnett Firefighter Injured In Lake Crest Apartment Fire

3/8/17 – There was one more injury than first reported in last Thursday’s fire at Beaver Dam’s Lake Crest Apartments. Fire Chief Alan Mannel told the city’s Police and Fire Commission that a firefighter from Burnett sustained a minor injury while battling the blaze that destroyed four of the 24-units in the complex. There were four residents that also sustained minor injuries. Mannel took a moment to compliment the first responders who successfully rescued two residents from the second floor. He says the structure is not a total loss and while it may take some time should be repairable. Had the fire started at 12:30-in-the-morning instead of over the noon hour it would have been a very different story. The cause of the fire is under routine investigation by the Beaver Dam Police Department.
