The screenhouse was a total loss, but the Wittenauer residence and other nearby buildings on the property were unscathed.

“Thanks to the Hecker and Waterloo fire departments,” Delbert Wittenauer posted Friday morning on Facebook. “Also to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and everyone who stopped by to assist and especially our neighbor, who awoke Sandy and myself to alert us that our screenhouse was burning.”
