Lake Geneva, WI – A significant fire engulfed Anchor Covenant Church on Park Row in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, late Monday night.  The blaze, visible from a distance with flames bursting from the roof, drew a large response from multiple fire departments across the region.

According to local sources, the fire was reported in the area of Clover and Park Row. The Mutual Aid Box Alarm System (MABAS) initiated a 2nd alarm response, calling in resources from Linn, Lyons, Town of Delavan, Williams Bay, Troy Center, Town of Burlington, and several other departments. Firefighting units included engines, trucks, squads, ambulances, and special equipment like the Walworth Rapid Intervention Team.
