HARRISON, Wis. (WBAY) - A family lost their home in a fire near Appleton Wednesday afternoon. The fire prompted the evacuation of an assisted-living facility next door.

Firefighters from the Village of Harrison and Darboy responded to the house fire on Silver Court. Action 2 News is told the fire started in the detached garage and spread quickly.

Investigators are figuring out what caused the fire. The house is considered a total loss. The garage was gutted.

“We were able to stop it once we got on scene, kind of kept it where it was at as far as spreading any further. There are some portions of the building they were able to salvage some things and grab some personables out of there,” Harrison Assisted Fire Chief Mike Stanonik said.

Many in the neighborhood gathered to watch as crews battled hotspots prior to giving an all-clear.

No one was hurt.

The American Red Cross is assisting the family. Friends set up a GoFundMe account for the family as well.

Residents of the assisted-living facility have since been allowed to return.

A restoration company arrived on scene to survey the damage later Wednesday evening. They put up yellow caution tape.
