House Fire 

FOND DU LAC, WI – On Friday February 8, 2013 at 11:47 a.m. the City of Fond du Lac Fire Department was dispatched to 93 East 13th Street for a report of a house on fire. Upon arrival, fire crews found heavy smoke and flames visible from outside the two and one half story residential structure. Firefighters attempted an offensive interior attack but were forced to go to a defense operation due to the type of construction and advancement of the fire. Heavy fire, heat, and smoke damage throughout. All occupants were safely out of the house. The house was owned by Nicholas W. Beske of Waupun.  Mr. Beske was in the process of a complete renovation at the time of the fire.


The fire remains under investigation. Although the exact cause of the fire has not yet been determined, fire investigators do not believe it is suspicious. There were no reported injuries.  The Fond du Lac Fire Department was assisted under the Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) by Lamartine, Campbellsport and the Town of Fond du Lac. The Fond du lac Police Department, Fond du Lac Department of Public Works and the Red Cross responded to the scene and provided assistance.
