ELKHORN—Firefighters from Rock County have been requested to assist firefighters from throughout Walworth County for a structure fire at Abell's Restaurant and Lounge, N6427 Highway 12, said a lead dispatcher at the Rock County Communications Center.

“We were requested at 5:31 a.m. Friday to send Milton and Clinton but Clinton couldn't go. So Turtle Township Fire Department did and each is sending a truck or tender,” he said.
