Garage Fire Causes Significant Damage

From the South Milwaukee Fire Department …

At approximately 4:29PM this afternoon (Sunday, Nov. 6, 2016), SMFD was notified of a garage on fire at the rear of 1621 Rawson Avenues. Arriving units discovered a detached garage with fire involving most of the interior. Assistance was provided by the Cudahy and Oak Creek Fire Departments. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation as units remain on the scene. An adult occupant of the residence suffered minor smoke inhalation and burns attempting to extinguish the fire and was evaluated by EMS personnel, but not transported for further care. No injuries to fire personnel were reported. The interior of the garage, including the contents, suffered significant damage from the fire.

I live only a few blocks from here and was on the scene not long after firefighters arrived — and saw firsthand their terrific work in getting this fire under control quickly. Well done, gentlemen, and thanks, as always.
