Fire officials: Weather likely caused fire at Green Co. salvage yard
TOWN OF EXETER, Wis. — Weather is likely to blame for a fire that burned multiple vehicles at a salvage yard in northern Green County Friday night, the Belleville Volunteer Fire Department said.
The fire broke out at a salvage yard in the town of Exeter just before 7:45 p.m., Belleville Fire Lt. Jake Myrland wrote in a Facebook post. When firefighters got to the scene, they found five vehicles on fire.
Crews were able to bring the flames under control within minutes.
With the weather posing a threat, the salvage company moved the burnt vehicles to an open field so they wouldn’t pose any danger to the remaining vehicles.
