Beaver Dam Fire Department Battles Garage Fire Sunday

(Beaver Dam) The Beaver Dam Fire Department battled a garage fire Sunday morning. The agency was dispatched to 148 Prospect Avenue around 7:40am.

Upon arrival, crews found heavy smoke and fire from a detached single-car garage. Fire Chief Michael Wesle says firefighters quickly deployed a one-three-quarter-inch hose line and knocked down the main body of the fire.

He says crews were able to keep the blaze contained to the original garage, but there was some damage noted to the owner’s house along with an adjacent garage. The fire department remained on scene for just under two hours.

Wesle says the cause of the fire is under investigation. He also thanked neighbors and passerby’s who reported the fire. Wesle says without them, the blaze would have quickly spread and caused more damage.
