Town of Beloit Fire Department responds to three fires Tuesday

Firefighters from multiple departments are kept busy by three fires in the Town of Beloit.

The first call came in around 10:00 Tuesday morning in the 4000 block of South Gesley Road where firefighters found a 40 by 70 foot shed fully engulfed.

It took 40 firefighters from more than a dozen agencies about and hour to contain the fire.

The second call came in just after noon in the 3800 block of West Bass Creek Road where a controlled fire had gotten out of control, and was beginning to burn four acres of woods.

That fire was quickly extinguished, and damage was limited to about $1,500.

The third call came in just after 1:30 in the afternoon in the 1400 block of Happy Hollow Road where firefighters found a grass fire that was beginning to spread to some nearby woods.

Due to limited access it took more than four hours to fully extinguish that fire.
