Brookfield Fire and Emergency Services returned to the scene of a structure fire on Highway 2 in Brookfield Tuesday afternoon. 

Rod Nielson, fire chief for the Brookfield Fire and Emergency Services, tells our newsroom they were responding to a hotspot caused by an increase in the wind. 

The blaze initially broke out at the property on Monday, with the fire department receiving a report of the fire around 5 p.m. 

Nielson says no one was home at the time and there were no injuries. 

He says the fire was under control before 10 p.m., but firefighters didn't leave the scene until around 1:30 a.m. 

He says at least seven fire departments responded, with multiple departments covering for the stations. 

The investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing. 

A section of Highway 2 between Highway 289 and Whidden Road was blocked on Monday while fire departments dealt with the blaze.

The highway was closed for several hours and reopened around 10 p.m.
