Western Lakes Fire District responds to 2 fires Christmas Day, no one hurt
WAUKESHA COUNTY (CBS 58) -- The Western Lakes Fire District responded to two fires on Christmas Day.
According to the department, no one was hurt in either fire.
Authorities were called to the first fire at 7:37 a.m. near E. Wisconsin Ave and N. Lapham St in Oconomowoc at a McDonald’s restaurant. The fire was reported to be in two fat fryers. Two people were inside the building at the time but got out unhurt. The fire department says cold temperatures and low wind chills contributed to the difficulty of dealing with the fire. The cause is unknown. There is no damage estimate or word on when the restaurant will reopen.
The department later responded to a fire near N. Breezeland Rd. and N. Sawyer Rd. in Summit. The fire was called in by neighbors around 2:20 p.m. when they saw smoke coming from a garage. According to the department, the garage was unoccupied at the time of the fire and no one was hurt. An investigation concluded that discarded burning materials started the blaze.
