Small Appliance Cause Of Sunday Afternoon Fire

An alert neighbor notified the Fond du Lac County Communications Center of a house fire Sunday (4/3/2022).

The structure fire was called in just before 12:43 p.m. Sunday on Phoenix Dr. in the Town of Friendship. 

Sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene and were able to make contact with the homeowner after evacuation.  The residence was a complete loss due to the fire.  Two neighboring homes sustained moderate damage as well.  The origin of the fire appears to have been a small home appliance and the fire is not considered suspicious at this time.  There were no injuries.
