TOWN OF CHRISTIANA (WKOW) -- A pole shed fire in the Town of Christiana caused an estimated $25,000 in damage and killed more than 50 chickens early Sunday morning.

According to the Dane County Sheriff’s Office, the pole shed was fully engulfed in flames when officials responded at 4:27 a.m. to the fire at 2160 State Highway 73. A preliminary investigation points to a possible electrical issue as the cause of the fire, which resulted in a total loss of the structure. Officials say the fire does not appear to be suspicious.
