(Fort Winnebago) A fire destroyed a detached garage in the town of Fort Winnebago over the weekend. The Portage Fire Department was dispatched to W8039 Dumke Road just after noon Saturday.

Upon arrival, crews encountered heavy fire conditions with one garage fully involved. Fire Chief Troy Haase says a propane tank on the rear exterior of the garage was venting and on fire. He says firefighters attacked the garage from multiple sides but were unable to save the structure.

The shed was a total loss, but crews were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to a second garage. There were no injuries. The cause of the fire was undetermined.
