Crews Extinguish Fire In Waupun

Lightning could be the cause of a Friday morning garage fire in Waupun.

At 11:18 a.m. Waupun Fire Crews responded to a home in the 500 block of Grace Street for a report of a structure fire.  Upon arrival, crews observed smoke and flames coming from a detached garage.  Firefighters forced entry into the garage through a service door and discovered a fire burning near the roof.  Crews initiated an interior fire attack and quickly knocked down the fire before it extended to the nearby house.   

Damage was contained to the garage with initial damage estimates of $3,000-$5,000.  While the fire remains under investigation, lightening in the area is being looked at as a possible cause.  No firefighters or individuals at the scene were hurt during the incident. 

Agencies assisting this morning included the Waupun Police Department and Lifestar Ambulance.
