VIDEO: The Red Cross already assisted ten families in Southeastern Wisconsin area since Friday, five of those fires happened since Christmas, and one of them was personal for a Vernon firefighter. "My wife and I, Janice, were on our way to a friend of mine's house. He has a Christmas party every year. On the way, my pager went off for a fire in Mukwonago," said Asst. Chief Patrick Hays with Vernon Fire Department. Hays was headed to a Christmas party at the home, and instead of arriving as a guest, he got to his friend's now-burning home in full firefighting gear. "I didn't recognize the address at all until I got there. When I pulled up I saw bubba sitting outside," said Hays.
