DUNDAS – A machine shed adjacent to three homes was destroyed early Monday morning in an intense fire that threatened those nearby residences – but firefighters from three counties battled the inferno and saved the homes.
The fire broke out in the small Town of Woodville hamlet at W3213 Dundas Road around 2:30 a.m. It is in the Hollandtown Fire Protection District, and the Hollandtown Volunteer Fire Department called for help from the Forest Junction, Harrison, Buchanan, Hilbert, Stockbridge and Brillion fire departments.
Harrison EMS First Responders and Gold Cross Ambulance were at the scene as a precaution.
The first officer on the scene reported that the building was fully involved. Firefighters concentrated their efforts on saving the nearby homes, and were successful.
Water was ferried to the scene from the nearby Grandview Dairy. The Calumet County Sheriff’s Department and Calumet County Highway Department closed the roads leading into Dundas to all but emergency vehicles.
On Monday morning, a fire investigator inspected the scene along with Hollandtown Fire Chief John VerVoort and other firemen.
The nearby homes all sustained exterior damage. No estimate of losses, or cause of the fire have been determined. At least one car was burned and others were damaged by the fire.
