It was just before noon on Monday morning when the Black River Falls Fire Department and the Hatfield Fire Department were paged by the Jackson County Emergency Dispatch Center for unattached garage fire at N9193 Wren Lane. Upon arrival the departments had heavy smoke coming from the building and visible flame inside the 40′ x 40′ single story wood frame structure.
The fire cause is under investigation but a chimney pipe thimble through an exterior wall is suspicious in natural. The structure and contents sustained heavy fire – heat damage and appears it will be a total loss.
A fire damage estimate is not known at this time and it was insured. One firefighter was treated at the scene for fatigue.
