House Fire Extinguished on Elm Grove Road
Multiple fire departments helped battle a residential fire that started in the sunroom of a home on Elm Grove Road in Brookfield.
Brookfield firefighters quickly extinguished a blaze that started in the sunroom of a home on Elm Grove Road.
Fire Chief Charlie Myers said first responders spotted flames and smoke coming from the rear of the home when they arrived on the scene. The home was at 530 South Elm Grove Road. The fire was in the city's mutual response area, and New Berlin firefighters arrived on the scene first.
"First police officer arrived on scene saw heavy smoke," Myers said. "Our comapnies arrived on scene along with New Berlin and made an aggresive fire attack on the rear of the building. We extinguished the fire rapidly."
The homeowners were out of the house when the fire started, and no firefighters were injured during the blaze, which started at roughly 1:15 p.m. Tuesday.
Myers said the cause of the fire remains under investigation, and a total damage estimate has not been released. However, Myers said they will likely contact the Red Cross tonight to find temporary housing accomodations for the family.
