MENASHA, Wis. (WFRV) – Authorities say an early Tuesday morning fire in Menasha has left one garage a total loss.
In a release from the Neenah-Menasha Fire Rescue, crews responded to a reported structure fire at 1:18 a.m. on the 700 block of De Pere Street.
Officials say they arrived at the scene in just five minutes and upon their arrival they reported smoke and flames coming out of a detached garage with another detached garage in danger of being damaged by the fire.
