One has to wonder how the fire department of Ludington effectively handled this fire? It is the lighthouse that is a good quarter of a mile out into Lake Michigan on the breakwater. This time its light was a warning to itself!
I would hazard to say that the fire department pumped water out of Lake Michigan itself to put out that fire. But can you imagine if the lake was ripe with high waves? I don’t think the fire department would have risked it then. Yet maybe that wavy day itself might have put out that fire? Does anyone know how much damage that lighthouse incurred during that blaze? Maybe a boat was dispatched to put out the fire? Does anyone recall what year this was?
