Fire causes $150,000 damage to Green Bay home
The cause of the fire is under investigation
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Green Bay Metro Fire Department says a fire caused $150,000 damage to a house on the city’s near-east side Tuesday morning. Firefighters say the age and construction of the house made fighting the fire more difficult.
At about 7 a.m., crews responded to a home in the 800 block of S. Quincy St. after a report of smoke coming from a hole in the roof of the home. Several engines responded initially.
Firefighters saw smoke coming from a third-story window. They dealt with intense heat and heavy smoke on the first and second floors and called other fire departments for reinforcements. Bellevue, De Pere, Ashwaubenon, Howard and New Franken fire crews all provided some assistance.
Firefighters did not find anyone inside the home. There are no reports of injuries.
One person will need to find another place to stay.
The Green Bay Fire Marshal’s Office is looking into what caused the fire.
