MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - A porch fire spread to a home and significantly damaged a vehicle early Saturday morning in Janesville.

Firefighters were dispatched to 411 Wilson Avenue for a fire on the porch of the residence around 3:30 a.m., according to the Janesville Fire Department. Responding firefighters found the porch to be a “fully involved enclosed porch.”

JFD said the fire extended significantly into the single family home. In just 15 minutes, firefighters extinguished the fire, according to a release.
