Watertown implement repair business destroyed by fire
WATERTOWN — Officials say a
large fire at an implement repair business in Watertown caused about
$1 million in damage.
At least 10 additional agencies helped Watertown firefighters at
Waupun Equipment Co. Monday. Watertown Fire Chief Kraig Biefeld says
the source of the fire that destroyed the building was an oil
burner. Biefeld says while the cause remains under investigation, it
does not appear suspicious.
About 45 firefighters were rotated in and out of service at the
scene because of the cold temperatures and strong winds. They were
on the scene for about four hours.
