An early Sunday morning fire has left a Nasewaupee man without a home. Units from the Southern Door Fire Department reported to the scene on Edgewood Court just after 3 a.m. Sunday with the garage of the home fully engulfed. The homeowner told firefighters he heard popping before going to check on what the sounds were, only to be pushed back by flames. Originally called into the dispatch center as an explosion, Southern Door Fire Chief Gary Vandertie says they are not quite sure what caused the fire yet.
No injuries were reported as the fire remains under investigation. The Southern Door Fire Department received aid from agencies like the Sturgeon Bay Fire Department, Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Department, and Algoma Fire Department until they cleared the scene at 6:30 a.m.
