Fire Starts In Boat, Spreads To Garage, House

Posted: November 19, 2012 -- 3:54 p.m.

A fire starts in a boat and spreads to the nearby garage and house in the Town of Dunn.

It started around 2:30 p.m. Monday on the 1800-block of South Brooklyn Street in the Town of Dunn, near Stoughton.

Witnesses say it started in a boat parked outside a garage. The wind reportedly blew the flames into the garage, and it also spread to parts of the house's attic.

Right now there's no word on the cause, but the one person inside the home was able to make it out safely.

Officials say the garage and part of the house are a total loss.
