Waupaca firefighters responded to two fires Monday and Tuesday.
At approximately 6:20 p.m. Monday, they were called out to a wildfire at Emmons Creek on Stratton Lake Road in the town of Belmont on the Waupaca-Portage county line.
Waupaca Fire Chief Jeff Olsen said firefighters spent 4 1/2 hours battling the blaze that burned nearly 50 acres.
Waupaca was joined by the Department of Natural Resources and units from Wild Rose and Almond. The DNR is still investigating the cause of the fire.
At approximately 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Waupaca firefighters were called out to a house fire at 10864 Second Ave., also in the town of Belmont.
When they arrived, firefighters found flames venting through the roof of a two-story farm house. They remained at the scene until 2:30 a.m. Wednesday.
There was significant damage to the upstairs of the building.
Wild Rose and Almond fire departments were called for assistance.
The fire was probably caused by the chimney of a wood stove in the front room, according to the the incident report.
