Crews Rush To Alto For Another Fire

For the second time in less than a day, fire crews were on the scene in the Town of Alto for a fire.

The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department was notified just before 6:45 p.m. Friday (5/13/2022) of a barn fire on Oak Grove Rd., located in the Town of Alto.

The Alto Fire Department arrived on the scene, and found a backhoe parked inside a barn, completely engulfed in flames.

The fire had spread to the barn, but was quickly extinguished, keeping damage to the barn to a minimum.

The backhoe, however, was a total loss.

There were no injuries reported as a result of the fire, and there were no animals injured or lost in the fire.

Assistance at the scene was provided by the Waupun Country Fire Department, Brandon/Fairwater Fire Department, RIT Team 3, and Lifestar Ambulance.
