Watertown Fire Department Assists in Beaver Dam Residential Structure Fire

According to a press release from the Beaver Dam Fire Department, yesterday the Watertown Fire Department was called to assist them in a residential structure fire. At about 12:30 p.m. the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a fire at 414 E. Mill St. in the City of Beaver Dam.


The first arriving crews found a wind driven fire on the North side of the structure. Hose lines were simultaneously deployed to the rear and to the interior of the house. Crews were able to quickly extinguish the fire on the exterior of the structure. However, the wind drove the fire into the eves, which took a short time to extinguish. Prior to the arrival of the fire department, two neighbors entered the home and alerted the lone sleeping resident of the fire. No injuries were reported as a result of the fire. The home had working smoke detectors.


The Beaver Dam Fire Department went to the Working Still level and brought in mutual aid units from Waupun, Juneau, Horicon, Fox Lake, Watertown, and Hustisford Fire Departments. Also assisting was the Dodge County Sheriff's Department Communication Center, Beaver Dam Police Department, and Alliant Energy. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
