The Green Bay Metro Fire Department switched its first bulb to red on its Holiday Wreath Program. The Holiday Wreath Program is a public awareness campaign that runs from Thanksgiving Day until January 1, 2023, and consists of a wreath with all green lights. If a residential fire in the city of Green Bay happens, one light will be changed to red. Around 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, fire crews were sent to the city’s east side for a report of a garage fire. Members of the Green Bay Police Department were the first on the scene and located a small fire inside the garage area. Engine 2 was able to extinguish the fire and perform overhaul operations quickly. Firefighters say that the fire was caused due to improper disposal of smoking materials.
