Fire destroys garage in Fond du Lac; causes neighborhood power outage

FOND DU LAC -- Fond du Lac fire officials responded to the scene of a garage fire near 1st and Everett early Monday morning, June 29th.

When crews arrived on scene around 1 a.m. the garage was fully involved in fire.

Officials say crews had to use extreme caution due to power lines in close proximity that were damaged by the fire.

Alliant Energy was called to the scene and secured electrical services. Several neighboring residents were without power while energy crews repair damaged power lines.

A neighboring detached garage sustained moderate damage.

Police officers were on-scene and provided scene safety and assisted with initial fire investigation.

Fire crews will be out later today canvassing the area distributing fire safety information to neighboring residents.
