ELCHO - People across the Northwoods spent most of the Saturday dealing with storm damage. Firefighters in Elcho sprung into action last night as soon as the winds died down.
They cleared roads until about two in the morning, slept for a couple hours, and started working again around 5:30.
Fire chief Bob Jensen said he appreciates all the help the fire department received today, but cautions people to be safe.
"Give us some room to work so we can get it done safely," said Jensen. "We just don't want someone to get hurt. We were fortunate that no one got hurt in the storm."
The fire station was one of hundreds of buildings damaged in the storm. Part of the roof landed 100 feet away, across County Road K.
"This is part of the roof from over our meeting room," said Jensen. "Maybe about a quarter of our roof is gone from our building."
All of Elcho is without power right now. Jensen doesn't expect it to return for a few days.
