Blaze Causes $75 Thousand in Damage to Fire Department

The village fire department found itself in a familiar situation at a very unexpected location Wednesday afternoon when it was called to put out a fire at one of its own facilities.

Firefighters were dispatched at about 12:45 p.m. to smoke and flames at the rear of Howard Fire Station No 2 at 4165 Shawano Ave., which was unoccupied when the fire broke out, according to the Howard Fire Department.

Twelve firefighting units from Howard, Green Bay, Suamico, Pulaski and Hobart quelled most of the blaze in about 30 minutes, though firefighters stayed on the scene 2½ hours to completely extinguish the fire.

The fire caused $75,000 in losses, including heavy interior smoke damage and moderate structural damage, but fire trucks were mostly unscathed, and $250,000 in property value was preserved, according to the fire department.

The fire department believes the fire may have started in a storage area, but the Brown County Fire Investigation Task Force is still investigating.
