Two people were reported injured after a pontoon boat and fishing boat reportedly crashed Wednesday night on Browns Lake. Town of Burlington firefighters and City of Burlington rescue crews were dispatched at 7:30 p.m. to the Fischer Park boat launch, 30526 Durand Ave. (Highway E), to aid a man with an arm injury and a woman with a nose injury, emergency radio reports indicated. The City of Burlington Fire Department sent two ambulances to the scene. At least one of the parties was transported to Aurora Burlington Medical Center. The Town of Burlington Fire Department responded with one of its boats, although it was unclear as of this posting if the Fire Department boat had to travel out on the lake to meet the injured parties. A Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources warden was requested to respond to the scene to investigate.
