Firefighters are having a hard time battling the rising temperatures. Two Grand Chute firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion while fighting a blaze at a restaurant Thursday night.
“The personal protective equipment we wear is to protect us from the heat, but on the same level, it can also trap heat inside. So it can be a bad combination, but when you come outside from a fire, you want to try to decimate that heat as quickly as you can,” Bantes said.
