Portage Firefighters Battle Shed Blaze

(Portage) The Portage Fire Department was dispatched for reports of a wood shed fire Tuesday night. Fire crews responded to W11110 Walker Road at 9:56PM, where they encountered heavy fire and smoke conditions with a wood shed and boiler fully involved.

Crews battled the blaze, but the structure was a total loss. Crews were able to protect a nearby propane tank and residence.  The cause of the fire is undetermined, but believed to have been caused by hot ashes from the boiler.
