Fire destroys Fulton Township milk house
Edgerton and Milton firefighters responded to the fire at 11:58 a.m. at 5729 Highway 59. The fire started from an electrical heat lamp in the milk house, which was being used as a chicken coop, said Capt. Adam Walton with the Edgerton Fire Department.
A new pickup truck was removed from the three-car garage and was not damaged. An older car sustained smoke damage, Walton said.
Firefighters were on scene for an hour and a half and used 6,000 gallons of water to put out the flames. The chickens were not harmed, Walton said.
