UNDATED (WHBL) - Most Wisconsinites were able to enjoy July Fourth fireworks shows – even though some places canceled their events due to hot and dry weather. Shows in Oak Creek and Waukesha ended early, after they started grass fires. Delavan, Elm Grove, and Shorewood were among the communities which called off their fireworks shows. In the Milwaukee suburb of Cudahy, two men were hurt while taking part in a holiday parade. Police said a V-F-W veteran might have suffered a heat stroke and lost consciousness before a car he was driving hit a flag bearer in front of him. Cudahy fire-fighters who were marching in the parade immediately tried to help the two. They were taken to a hospital, but their conditions were not immediately known. Meanwhile, several more Wisconsin highways were temporarily closed yesterday after the heat buckled the pavement. Lanes were closed on Interstate-94 near Johnson Creek, I-39 near Portage, Highway 12 near Madison, and Highway 33 in Dodge County. On Tuesday, lanes were shut down due to pavement buckling in Lincoln, Chippewa, Dane, and Columbia counties.
