Janesville Fire Department Deputy Fire Chief Bill Ruchti said the proportion of hazardous materials coming and going in Rock County as rail freight doesn't appear to be growing at a rate any faster than it is on highways and Interstates through Rock County.

He said rail hazmat emergencies are just one facet of the department's countywide hazmat responsibility, which it shares with other regional and state hazmat teams.
In Janesville, Ruchti said, there has not been a recent, significant hazmat emergency.

After the tenant left his apartment, the heater ignited nearby bedding materials, said Bill Ruchti, Janesville Fire Department shift commander.

Another tenant in the three-apartment complex reported the fire just before 9:30 a.m.
The second tenant heard smoke alarms going off and smelled smoke, but called someone else before dialing 911, Ruchti said. Fire officials want residents to call 911 when they hear smoke alarms.
"Seconds are critical when it comes to a fire," he said.
Ruchti also reminded residents to take precautions when using space heaters.
"First and foremost, don't leave them on when you're gone or (a home is) unattended," he said.
Utility crews hoped to have furnaces in the building up and running soon so the tenant in the ground-level apartment wouldn't have to relocate, Ruchti said.

Capt. Bill Ruchti of the Janesville Fire Department estimated there had been less than 50 gallons of fuel in the truck's tank at the time of the accident.

Some fuel did run off into the nearby storm sewer, but a city sewer truck sucked up what it could, Ruchti explained.City street sweepers also helped clean up nearly 1,500 pounds of oil-dry that had been spread to soak up the spill, he added.

Deputy Fire Chief Bill Ruchti said more houses are scheduled to be burned over the next few days, with five area fire departments taking part in the training.

The department has not burned any houses in the recent cold weather because of potential damage to fire trucks, the difficulty of working in cold weather and the potential for ice to build up on the streets, Ruchti said.
"It looks like the next three days are going to be ideal for us, so the next three days we'll be burning," Ruchti said Thursday morning.
Contact the fire department at 608-755-3050 or Ruchti at 608-755-3051 with any questions.
