Salvage Yard Cleanup

Firefighters from nearly two dozen departments responded to the scene of a five alarm fire at an auto salvage yard.  There was a lot of damage, including burned structures, automobiles and debris.  The Highway was closed for several hours due to the dangerous situation.  North Shore was contacted by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to cleanup the site.  North Shore used their Hi Vac vacuum truck to cleanup the oily water.  Absorbent boom was used to contain any runoff.  A dozer and excavator were used during the cleanup, and contaminated soil was dumped into a roll off box.  A frac tank, including spill containment, was also used at the site.

North Shore finalized the cleanup and provided transportation and disposal of the oily water and soil.
