SUPERIOR, Wisconsin – Superior Fire Department crews responded to a structural fire early Saturday morning, which destroyed vehicles inside, but no one was injured.
According to a spokesperson for the fire department, crews arrived at the house at 4 Bridgeview Drive around 8:20 a.m., to find a three-stall attached garage fully involved with a large amount of fire coming out of the overhead doors and the smoke coming from the house.
Everyone was reported safe outside. Firefighters attacked the fire through garage doors while ventilating to prevent the fire from spreading into the house.
“Significant water and foam,” the spokesperson said, were used to extinguish the fire. The teams were on site until 11 a.m.
The vehicles in the garage were a total loss and the garage suffered significant damage. However, according to the spokesperson, the house suffered only slight smoke damage, with the exception of the areas connected to the garage.
The damage is estimated at approximately $ 150,000. The two occupants of the house remain with friends until it is possible to return safely.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
It has been a busy week for the senior fire department, as this is the 2nd fire in just two days after the a massive fire that destroyed two historic Superior warehouses.
