BELOIT (WIFR) – Around 1:15am Tuesday morning fire broke out inside a building at Prairie Avenue Concrete on the 3500 block of Prairie Avenue.
When firefighters arrived on scene they could see heavy smoke and flames inside one of the buildings containing a cement hopper. Crews worked quickly to stop the fire from spreading to the rest of the building.
The estimated total damage is $20,000. The cause of the fire is possibly due to an overheated torch. The torch was reportedly being used to warm a frozen water pipe.
Other fire departments who responded to the scene or to mutual aid were City of Beloit, Orfordville, Harlem Roscoe, Edgerton, Juda and South Beloit.
