Firefighters Quickly Put Out Porch Fire at FDL Home

Fond du Lac Firefighters were able to quickly put out a small porch fire at a home on 5th Street Wednesday afternoon. The fire department was called to the home just before 3:30 for a report of a fire on the front porch of the home. The fire did not cause any damage to the main structure, and there were no injuries. Firefighters did have to support the porch structure before clearing the scene and releasing it back to the homeowner. The cause of the fire was determined to be the careless use of smoking materials. Fire and Rescue Crews will be canvassing the area tomorrow to educate homeowners on the importance of working smoke detectors and fire safety.
