Oil burner fire causes over $1 million in damages to Watertown company


WATERTOWN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A fire in Watertown caused over $1 million in damages to a business.

The Jefferson County dispatch center received a 911 call for a report of black smoke coming out of the door of a large shed.

It happened at the Waupun Equipment Co. located at N9695 Frohling Road in Watertown around 4:19 a.m. on Monday.  

The fire was quickly upgraded to a box alarm.


The fire was caused by an oil burner in the building, the Watertown Fire Department says.
