STOUGHTON, Wis. (WMTV) - Crews estimate a fire that tore through a Stoughton home Tuesday caused around $600,000 in damage.

The Stoughton Fire Department said that crews arriving to the home on the 1400 block of Kings Lynn Road found a car on fire in the garage.

Firefighters quickly jumped into action to putting the fire out, noting that it had spread to the attic and back walls of the home. Stoughton Fire crews, Stoughton EMS officials, Stoughton Police Department officers and Oregon Fire Department were called to the scene initially, with a MABAS Box Alarm also put out to request additional help in extinguishing the fire.

Officials worked to knock down the fire, keeping it out of the actual living areas of the home.

All residents and pets had evacuated the home before crews arrived. Stoughton Fire Dept. stated that one firefighter was hurt and taken to a hospital to be treated. No residents or neighbors were injured.
