7-22-13 two people treated for heat related illness at fdl county fair

The extreme heat and humidity has taken its toll at the Fond du lac County Fair.  Initial indications are that the unbearable heat has affected attendance and Fond du lac County Sheriff’s captain
Rick Olig says at least two fairgoers were treated for heat related illness.  "They did have two people go down, one was an elderly person and one was a 16 year old that went down because of the heat,"  Olig said.  "I was out there on Wednesday  for just a little while.  When you went into some of the (service club) stands it was not too bad.  When you have some shade it was okay but walking the midway area it was just really hot."
