We want to say thank you to our mutual aid partners who filled our stations and helped fight the fire at Beloit Box Board. Our media release has more information below:

A three-alarm fire was extinguished around 1 a.m. Tuesday after crews from southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois battled a fire that was reported around 10 p.m. Monday at Beloit Box Board, 801 Second St.

One employee was in the building at the time; that employee safely evacuated without injury. There were no injuries reported to any civilian or firefighter.

Flames were visible from the roof of the building upon City of Beloit Fire Department arrival. Due to the space constraints in the building, equipment in the building, and the level of the fire, a three-alarm response was needed to safely extinguish the fire.

Thirty-three units from other area departments responded to the three-alarm fire in addition to crews from the City of Beloit Fire Department. Five additional units responded to back-fill City of Beloit fire stations. The City of Beloit Fire Department wants to thank the following departments for responding: Town of Beloit, South Beloit, Janesville, Town of Turtle, North Park, Harlem Roscoe, Rockton, Edgerton, Milton, Cherry Valley, Loves Park, Boone County District 2, Boone County District 3, Delavan, Elkhorn, Clinton, Sharon, Monroe, Rockford, Capron, Pecatonica, Belvidere, and Win Bur Sew.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. A damage estimate is unavailable at this time.
