Barn fire breaks out in Portage Co.; no injuries reported

PORTAGE COUNTY (WAOW) — A farm fire in Portage County Monday left no injuries, but the barn is a total loss, officials say.

Officials received a call for a structure fire along County Road EE in Buena Vista at approximately 10:27 a.m. The fire required Portage County Sheriffs and highway department officials to block off roads as multiple fire crews worked to extinguish it.

It took about 45 minutes for responding crews to neutralize the fire. No humans or animals were injured in the fire, according to crews at the scene.

Plover Fire Chief Mark Deaver said crews will remain at the scene for a while as they ensure the fire is completely out before they leave.

Fire departments from Plover, Amherst, Almond, Bancroft, Hull, Randolph, Stockton, Stevens Point and Park Ridge assisted at the scene.
