No injuries were reported, but a home has been deemed “unlivable,” following a fire near McGregor on Sept. 5.

McGregor Hook and Ladder Co. No. 1 responded to a structure fire at 30279 Klein Brewery Road, just outside McGregor, around 8 a.m. Firefighters remained on scene until 10:30 a.m., to contain the blaze.

“It started in the garage area,” near the rear of the home, said Trampus Thornton, with McGregor Hook and Ladder. “Then it went into the house.”

According to Thornton, two people were in the home at the time the fire started, but were able to escape. The home was not so lucky.

“The house is not livable right now,” Thornton said. “It’s all smoked out.”

McGregor Hook and Ladder was assisted by the Monona Volunteer Fire Department.
