Garage fire in Redgranite caused by lightning

On Aug. 27 at 10:40 p.m., the Redgranite Fire Dept. responded to a garage fire at W4897 Martin Lane. The 14x20 foot garage was struck by lightning and was a complete loss by the time the Fire Dept. arrived.

Rob Wilcox, PR for Redgranite Fire Dept., noted that there was a structure housing goats and other animals adjacent from the fire, but they were able to contain the fire so no animals were harmed.

The Wautoma Fire Dept. and Waushara Sheriffs Dept. assisted, and no one was harmed.
