TOWN OF BELOIT (WKOW) -- After a garage fire that spread, a home in the Town of Beloit is considered a total loss after a fire Saturday afternoon.
The Town of Beloit and the City of Beloit fire departments, along with an Aerial Truck from the City of Janesville Fire Department, were dispatched to 6 East Valley Road in the Town of Beloit for an attached garage on fire just before 4 p.m.
Before crews arrived at the scene, additional units were called in from the Town of Turtle, South Beloit, Orfordville, and Brodhead to assist.
Dispatched confirmed all occupants were out of the house.
According to firefighters, when they arrived, the two-car garage was full of flames and was engulfing the home.
Fire units were battling the fire, as well as the cold weather, limited road access, and reduced water supply due to no hydrants in the area.
Crews said they were on the scene until 9:30 p.m., and one unit stayed to monitor any flare-ups.
No firefighters were injured and no injuries to civilians or pets said firefighters.
The Town of Beloit Fire Department reported that the house, garage, and vehicles are a total loss, with damages estimated over $200,000. And after investigating, the cause of the fire is undetermined.
The fire department was thankful for departments from Edgerton, Juda, Rockton, and Janesville for handling other emergency calls and SWEPT volunteers were on scene to provide food and rehydration.
