Garage fire spreads and damages two homes

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WBAY) – Two families were forced out of their homes after a garage fire grew Friday evening.

The Sheboygan Fire Department was dispatched to a home on the 1500 block of North Avenue in Sheboygan around 7:12 p.m.

Firefighters say there was a garage on fire and the fire spread to the living room of the home and was threatening another home to the east.

Officials say the bitter cold and ice formation caused a challenge for the crews and both homes had significant damage before the fire was brought under control.

One person was hurt and sent to the hospital. Two dogs from one of the homes involved were rescued and are okay.

The fire remains under investigation.
