Kronick and 16 other firefighters from the Connecticut Interstate Fire Crew returned Monday from the two-week assignment.

“These brave men and women volunteered to spend time away from home and family to work long days in hazardous conditions,” Rell said in a statement. “We are very proud of Michael and thank him for his leadership. We are very proud of the entire crew.”

The crew was deployed to the Sleeper Lake fire, which is 61 miles west of Sault Ste. Marie, Mich., the governor’s office said. It said the fire is listed at about 18,000 acres and is burning in marshland and upland pine.

It was the second year in a row that Kronick, a nine-year veteran of the department, had been sent out of state to fight forest fires. Last year, he and his crewmates spent several weeks in Oregon. (See WestportNow Aug. 18, 2006).
