LUXEMBURG, Wis. (WFRV) – Authorities have released more information surrounding the house fire that took place on Saturday morning in Kewaunee County.
According to the Luxemburg Community Fire Department, just after 10 a.m., crews responded to a home located on the 7000 block of County Road AB for a report that smoke was coming from the eaves of the residence.
When firefighters arrived at the scene they report having found a single-story ranch home with smoke exuding from the eaves located on the sides of the home as well as noticed flames coming from the eaves on the backside of the home.
Crews quickly entered the home to ensure all residents had evacuated the building before they began interior operations to extinguish the fire.
However, as crews were working to extinguish the flames, they noticed that the roof was showing signs of collapsing. This forced the interior crew to pull out and continue knocking down the fire from the outside of the residence.
Once it was determined safe to re-enter the home, crews completed interior operations with heavy fire extension throughout the attic.
The homeowner was not home when the fire broke out. No injuries were reported during the incident.
Officials report that the home and its contents sustained ‘significant’ fire, smoke, and water damage. Authorities believe the cause of the fire was electrical.
