On Wednesday April 20th 2022 at approximately 2:23 AM, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a structure fire in the 5100 block of Hy 83 in the Town of Addison. The initial caller on scene reported that a detached garage was on fire and that flames and smoke were visible. The first responding deputy reported that he observed active flames and that the fire was contained to the detached garage south of the residence.

St Lawrence Fire Department responded to the scene. They were also assisted by Allenton Fire Department, Slinger Fire Department, and Hartford Fire Department. They were able to keep the fire contained to the detached garage only; preventing damage to the other nearby structures including the residence.

The structure and its contents were a total loss. The property owner was unable to provide any preliminary damage estimates.

Traffic on Hy 83 between Cty Tk K and Cty Tk S was shut down for approximately two and a half hours to assist fire department efforts on scene.

The circumstances surrounding the fire did not appear to be suspicious in nature but the fire is still under investigation by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and St Lawrence Fire Department.
