Chippewa Co. garage destroyed in fire, nearby home suffers minimal damage

Posted:

Chippewa County (WQOW) - A close call for homeowners in Chippewa County as a garage burning close to the house is put out before it could spread. 

Chippewa County fire district officials said a garage was engulfed in flames when crews got there Wednesday afternoon.

That garage was close to the home, but crews said they were able to get it under control before it caused any major damage. Officials told News 18 they couldn't confirm whether anyone was home at the time, but said the call came in from Dunn County Electric which was doing utility work down the street when workers could see smoke.

Officials said no one was hurt and the family will be allowed back home.
