A fire that started in a shed where a person was living spread to a nearby garage, destroying both buildings, authorities confirmed. Firefighters responded around 9 p.m. Monday to a report of a shed on fire on North Lincoln Avenue. The fire started in an 8-by-8-foot shed where a person had been staying for four to five years and spread to a nearby garage filled with manicure and pedicure supplies, Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue Division Chief Troy Haase said. Crews worked for about 30 minutes to put out the fire. While the cause of the fire is ruled as undetermined, Haase said investigators cannot rule out “smoking materials,” as they think the person staying in the shed had been smoking.
