Kaukauna — The Kaukauna Fire Department responded this morning, at approximately 4:45 am to a fire at 600 Thilmany Rd. When crews arrived on scene they found a coal hopper with approximately 40 tons of coal on fire.
Access to the storage hopper was limited but, firefighters were able to direct hose-lines onto the fire. The fire response team from the Thilmany Plant assisted the Kaukauna Fire Department with extinguishing the fire.
