VIDEO: Deforest Fire Department responded Sunday afternoon to reports of a barn on fire at the Arlington Research Station and multiple other local fire departments followed quickly to assist, UW Police said. DeForest Fire crews were dispatched around 4 p.m. and more than a dozen agencies responded to the fire total. It took crews about an hour to get the fire under control. The fire was contained to one large structure, said Director of Agricultural Research Stations Michael Peters. “We’re very fortunate the Arlington Fire Department responded very quickly and helped us keep the fire to the structure - it’s been contained to one structure - as well as UWPD responded very quickly to provide on-site services immediately,” Peters said. The barn housed farming equipment and hay, according to University of Wisconsin Police Department.
