UPDATE — According to Chief John Niederer (via Earlene Frederick):

The call came for a structure fire, called in by the neighbor. The home wasn’t occupied. Upon arrival, they had heavy smoke showing. They asked for a MABAS Box, because water had to be brought by tender. (no hydrants) The structure sustained significant damage, but the firefighters made a good stop to prevent it from being worse. The house is an older one, built in 1938, according to Kenosha county records.
