ALLOUEZ, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay Metro Fire Department has released more details about the house fire on the 600 Block of Mission Road in the Village of Allouez.
During an interview with Local 5 News, Battalion Chief Chad Bronkhorst informed us that two structures on Mission Road were affected by the fire.
“We do know that the fire was started by juveniles who were playing with fire and caused the start,” explained Bronkhorst. “We knocked down on it very rapidly.” The Green Bay Metro Fire Department was able to extinguish the flames within 30 minutes.
The battalion chief explains that there were other family members present when the fire started. There was one minor injury and the person was treated on the scene and released.
According to a release, the Green Bay Metro Fire Department says four adults, three children, and one dog are without a home due to the incident. While the one home is inhabitable, firefighters were able to contain the flames on the second house before causing major damage.
“I think it’s really important that parents are careful when it comes to children and anything that could cause a fire. Make sure you talk to your children about that,” added Bronkhorst.
