Home lost in Gibraltar fire

Gibraltar Fire and Rescue and supporting departments were on the scene of a residence for approximately 12 hours after the blaze started early Sunday evening. The first crews from Gibraltar Fire and Rescue were dispatched at approximately 5:30 p.m. They immediately called for assistance from the Baileys Harbor, Ephraim, Egg Harbor, Jacksonport, Sturgeon Bay, and Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department when they discovered the home on Sugar Bush Court in the Town of Gibraltar was fully engulfed. Gibraltar Fire Chief Andy Bertges says the home’s owners left town earlier in the day. Because of the fire’s location, he added that no one noticed until it was too late.

There were no injuries, but the home is considered a total loss. Firefighters were able to save a nearby detached garage. Bertges says the cause of the fire remains under investigation, but it does serve as a reminder for residents to make sure their fire alarms are fully operational. While much of the work was completed by midnight, Bertges added that they were still putting out the occasional hot spot until early Monday morning.
