The Mukwonago Fire Department was called to Andrews Street Saturday just as daylight savings switched the time over to 2:01 a.m. for a garage that had caught fire.
On scene, fire department crews were met by Town and Village of Mukwonago Police who had been the first to arrive, and discovered that the fire had spread to the neighboring garage, Deputy Chief Andy Wegner said. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The garage that initially caught fire was just about a pile of ashes when the fire department arrived. Luckily, the second garage was made mostly of brick which helped contain the fire. However, the heat from the second garage burning was so strong that the siding of the corresponding home started to melt. Crews were able to keep the situation under control to prevent the home from starting on fire.
The fire burned through power lines near the scene, and around a half dozen residents were without power for three to four hours. As soon as emergency crews cleared the scene, We Energies arrived and repaired the power lines.
Mutual aid was provided by Eagle, Vernon, Tess Corners, Town of Waukesha, a squad from North Prairie and the North Prairie auxiliary canteen unit. Dousman, Wales Genesee and Big Bend Fire Departments provided station coverage while the Mukwongo department was on scene.
Wegner explained that so many units originally responded to the scene because crews were initially unable to determine the number of structures on fire through the dense smoke. Several vehicles left the scene as soon as the extent of the fire was determined.
Neighboring homes were evacuated for around two hours due to the high volume of smoke coming from the scene. Those awake during the fire report hearing several small explosions, which Wegner said was likely caused from items in the garages catching fire, not necessarily the cause of the fire.
A preliminary guess as to the cost of damage is placed at around $60,000.
No one was hurt in the fire. Fire crews don't believe the fire to be suspicious.
The Waukesha County Kids’ Choice Award encourages children in grades 4, 5 and 6 to keep reading at an age when interest in books often wanes. The program engages kids in the pre-teen years by giving a sense of ownership in the project as the award acknowledges their choices for the best books. Librarians from public libraries and school library media centers gather nominations from students and choose 15 titles. The Library System provides posters and bookmarks to participating public libraries and schools.
Kids who read at least five of the books vote for their favorite in early February at their school and public libraries or online at www.wcfls.org/kidschoice/. The winners - the books that Waukesha County Kids love to read (including the top vote getter and up to 3 honorable mentions) - are announced around Valentine's Day.
The Milwaukee Wave professional indoor soccer team sponsors the program, offering tickets to Milwaukee Wave games as reading incentives and participating in the annual award ceremony each February.

After residents spoke out against shifting a $50 garbage and recycling fee to property owners in the Village of Mukwonago as an annual fee, the Village Board voted tonight to take money out of reserve funds and put the full garbage fee back on the tax roll.
A number of residents complained that the Village keeps hitting them with fees, which slowly and incrementally increase over time - a trend they did not like seeing.
"If the Village wanted to spend more money than allowed, the honest thing would have been to put it to referendum and ask taxpayers if they are willing to support that," said resident Mary Pires.

City of Delafield - Plans to widen and resurface Milwaukee Street from the downtown business district east to near the Nagawicka Lake shore have been scrapped by the Common Council.
Instead, the council has approved a compromise proposed by Ald. Jim Behrend that calls for resurfacing Milwaukee Street from Onieda Street, near the downtown business district, east to Oak Street, which is about one third of the original approximately one mile long project.
Behrend, who served as mayor in the 1980s, also suggested the original proposed price tag of $900,000 for the project be cut in half to $450,000.
He convinced his fellow council members that widening and repaving Milwaukee Street from Oak Street east to the intersection of Milwaukee and Main Street, near the lake shore, could be postponed. However, sidewalks will be installed along Milwaukee Street east to Fireman's Park.
The original reconstruction proposal had encountered stiff oppostion from residents living along Milwaukee Street who objected to the number of trees that would be destroyed by widening the road.
They also challenged the wisdom of a replacing natural ditch and culvert storm water drainage along the road with concrete curbs and gutters. They said the hard surfaced system would increase the amount of siltation and pollution flowing off the road into the lake.
City Engineer Mike Court said much of the ditch and culvert system could be maintained with the compromise plan. However, he said most of the trees that would have been destroyed by the original proposal are still likely to be destroyed in the compromise plan.
