No Major Damage Caused After Fryer Unit Catches Fire At A McDonalds In Beaver Dam

(Beaver Dam) No major damage was caused when a fryer unit at a Beaver Dam McDonalds caught on fire Wednesday. The Beaver Dam Fire Department was dispatched to the Park Avenue business around 9:30am. Chief Alan Mannel says the blaze set off the hood extinguisher system which got most of the fire. He says crews were on scene for about thirty minutes conducting overhaul work. No exact cause was determined but Mannel notes that it is not uncommon for this type of equipment to catch fire. He says the unit itself should be salvageable and operational again in the future. The fire did not spread and no injuries were reported. Mannel says the restaurant was evacuated for a little over a half hour.
