DE PERE, Wis. (WFRV) – A fire broke out on the 700 block of South 6th Street in De Pere on Friday.

The De Pere Fire Department says upon arrival, they found a detached garage in flames. The fire was extending to the exterior of the residents but firefighters were able to extinguish the flames before spreading to the 2-story home.

“When we got here we had an active fire. We did an offensive attack and we were able to control the garage fire and the spread into the house,” said De Pere Battalion Chief Ron Cody.

As a result, the garage was a complete loss including a vehicle that was inside. The house did sustain moderate damage to the outside, but there was no extension into any levels inside the residence.

According to a release, the occupants of the home were evacuated before the De Pere Fire Department arrived.

The cause of the fire was due to a wood-burning heating unit inside the garage. That heating unit was being used at the time of the fire.

No civilians were injured but one firefighter did sustain minor burns. That firefighter was treated on scene and released.

Four engines, one ladder, one ambulance, two command cars, and around 20 firefighters all contributed to helping put out the fire.

The estimated damage to the garage, residence, and vehicle is around $50,000.
