Wausau police officer goes above and beyond after garage fire

WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW) — A few weeks ago, Wausau police and fire officials responded to a garage fire on the west side of town.

Now an officer is giving back to the family impacted.

Fire officials said flames from the fire completely destroyed the garage. The Wausau Police Department said in a post on Facebook that the family lost a lot of belongings in the garage, including a boy’s bike.

Officer Karlen of Wausau PD wanted to help the family out so they dug through the department’s bike barn and found a bike for the boy.

The Facebook post said Officer Karlen wanted to be sure the little guy didn’t miss out on the rest of the summer.
