No injuries, two garages destroyed by fire in Weston
MARATHON COUNTY, Wis. (WSAW) - No one was injured after two garages caught fire on Lahr Avenue, just off of Camp Phillips Road in Weston Saturday afternoon.
Six area fire departments responded to the blaze, the call coming in at 1:35 Saturday afternoon.
Batallion Chief Evan McBain with the South Area Fire District says that there was some damage to a home on the property, but the family will not be displaced.
“Our biggest concern, right away, was the house,” Chief McBain said. “The house did have some melted siding but we did keep the fire from spreading into it.”
Everest Metro Police had Lahr Avenue blocked off for about an hour.
McBain says the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
