According to Kurtti, the fire department was paged at 11:49 a.m. and got help from the McMillan Township, Trout Creek and Watersmeet fire departments, Sonco Ambulance and the Michigan State Police on site.

The scene was cleared around 2:42 p.m., Kurtti said. I…would like to thank everyone for responding and helping out as many of us work out of town and had a lot of distance to cover. Without Page Gate, a new system used by MSP Station 80 in Negaunee that sends a text message to our phones, most of us would have been (too far) out of pager range to be notified.
