Reported Car Fire Destroys Large 2-Story Garage

Fond du Lac, WI:  On Tuesday May 31, 2016 at 6:28 p.m. Fond du Lac Fire Rescue was dispatched to 466 W. Division for an automobile fully involved in fire parked next to a garage.  Multiple phone calls were made to Fond du Lac Communications Center which also had an address at 12 S. Butler.  The Division street was confirmed as the location of the fire.  The automobile fire quickly communicated to the adjacent 2-story wood frame garage.  Fire crews were hampered by multiple power lines which ran in the rear of the alleyway.  Alliant Energy was called to the scene to secure power  to the area. Some area residents were impacted with the loss of power while fire crews worked to extinguish the fire. 

There were no residents home at the time of the fire and the no immediate cause for the fire.  Fire crews were able to keep the fire contained to the garage and kept the fire from spreading to nearby garages and homes.  The cause of the fire is under investigation by police and fire investigators.  There were no injuries.  FDLFR was assisted on-scene by Fond du Lac City Police and Alliant Energy.  Photos and video are available @fdlfire.
