Several fire departments battled a fire in Solon Township Tuesday evening. It was located at 16685 Antler Drive, which is north of 20 Mile Rd, west of Algoma.

When the call came across dispatch shortly before 7 p.m., the fire was through the roof in the garage. It later spread to the house itself.

According to the Solon Township Fire facebook page, the family made it out of the house safely, and firefighters rescued two cats from the home.

Both Cedar Springs Fire and Algoma Fire Departments helped Solon put out the fire.

Complete details about the fire were not available at press time Wednesday.

That’s at least the third fire in a week for the Solon Township Fire Department.

West Michigan Hawks fall to Havoc


The West Michigan Hawks held their first ever pre-season game last Saturday evening, May 2, and came up short 55-21 against the Lake Michigan Havoc.

“There was a lot of adversity that we as a team had to overcome,” noted Hawks Coach David Lange. “We came out of the gates playing a team who won the championship last year and stuck with them for most of the game. To put up 21 points in your first game, with people you’ve never played with, against a team like the Havoc, is outstanding. There were mistakes that were made, which is to be expected, as a first year team. We will correct these mistakes and move forward. I was beyond pleased and grateful for the fan support that we had,” he added.

The Cedar Springs Fire Dept. was also in attendance with their fire trucks to support the Hawks. “When those trucks hit the sirens and blew the horns, you could see the excitement on the players faces, which I think helped keep them motivated,” remarked Lange.

N-West-Mich-Hawks2The West Michigan Hawks look forward to hosting the Detroit Diesels this Saturday May 9, 2015 at Skinner Field at 7:00 pm. The Cedar Springs Fire Dept. will also be in attendance for the game.

When asked what the team will do differently for this game coach Lange stated, “We are going to correct the mistakes, as well as build on the positive things that we did last week. We have made some position changes defensively in the secondary that I think will give us the edge. Offensively we need to mix up the plays a little better so we are not so one dimensional.”

Come support your West Michigan Hawks this Saturday at Skinner Field, gates open at 6:00pm with kickoff at 7:00.
