The Washington County Sheriff’s Office Communications Center received multiple calls on the fire within the period of only a few minutes. The first caller reported observing both flames and smoke coming from the residence.
Upon the arrival of the first responding deputy, the residence was fully engulfed in flames. Due to the intensity of the fire, deputies were unable to get close to the residence to check for occupants. It was later confirmed the home was unoccupied as contact was made with the homeowners via phone.
Jackson Fire Department responded to the scene. They were also assisted by Slinger Fire Department, Kewaskum Fire Department, Cedarburg Fire Department, West Bend Fire Department, Fillmore Fire Department, Newburg Fire Department, Richfield Fire Department, and St Lawrence Fire Department. Ambulances also responded to the scene from Germantown Fire Department and Lifestar. JDS Services assisted with excavation equipment.
There were no injuries to emergency response personnel on scene as a result of the fire. No other area residences were affected. Traffic on Town Line Road was completely shut down between Mayfield Road and Larkfield Drive to facilitate the response of fire apparatus.
The residence is now believed to be a total loss with damage estimates of $700,000.
It is believed the fire from the previous evening reignited and spread throughout the remainder of the residence.
