Shortly before 9 PM on Friday a home and attached garage became engulfed in flames near State Highway 54 and Rio Creek Road. Luxemburg and Casco Fire Departments devoted all of their resources to fighting the fire for over five hours. They were joined by a host of other agencies according to Training Officer Mike Beyer.
Beyer is appreciative of the turnout considering it was a Friday night on the eve of hunting season. Highway 54 had to be closed from Oak Street to County Road P and traffic control was performed by the Kewaunee County Sheriff's Department and Highway Department. Beyer says the cause of the fire is still under investigation. No one was injured and the fire did not spread from the rental property to nearby farm structures.
