The Wokisha Fire Department was busy extinguishing a house fire early Sunday morning on the eastern side of the city.
The crew was summoned to a house on North Greenfield Avenue, 800 blocks, near Anoka Avenue, around 1:15 am on September 19, 2021.
When they arrived, they found a “big fire” behind a double-decker house that stretched into the house. The crew worked actively for 30 minutes to control it.
The firefighter did not find anyone in the house during the fire. I found one cat, but didn’t survive.
The cause is under investigation. The Walkisha Fire received on-site support from the Walkisha Police and HAWS.
The department is using this fire to remind people to take the time to properly extinguish and dispose of smoking materials that could lead to a fire, and to operate smoke detectors at all levels of the house. ..
