At 11:40 pm, Dane County Deputies along with Burke / Bristol, De Forest, Sun Prairie, Cottage Grove, Blooming Grove, Maple Bluff and Truax Field Fire Departments responded to a report of a structure fire at 6011 U.S. Highway 51, in the Town of Burke.  A passerby made the initial telephone call to the Communications Center after seeing flames.

The first arriving deputy reported that the commercial structure, Naughty Novelties, was fully engulfed in flames.  A damage estimate is unavailable at this time, although it appears to be a total loss.

No persons or animals were reported injured or harmed in the blaze.  An exact cause of the fire remains under investigation.
