MOUNT HOREB, WI (WTAQ) - For a while early Saturday morning it looked like a burning police squad car could set fire to Mount Horeb’s police station.
Just after 4 a.m., police radioed for help when they spotted a police car which was fully involved.
Police told the 911 dispatcher they were concerned rifle rounds in the squad car could explode in the flames. It took Mount Horeb fire crews less than 20 minutes to put out the fire and no injuries were reports.
An outside wall on the police station was damaged by smoke and flames. That building is located at 222 East Front Street in Mount Horeb.
