Fire at historic Fracaro’s Lanes, Waukesha Wisconsin. Waukesha Fire Fighters received an alarm of a structure fire on New Year’s Day around 9 p.m. The building is located at 1430 Whiterock Ave. This bowling alley and family business dates back from 1933 to the present, with several additions and remodels throughout the years. It is currently a 16-lane bowling alley. Crews arrived on location and found smoke and flames coming from the roof. Firefighters entered the structure several times, but eventually forced out and went to a defensive operation. Eventually, the fire went to three alarms and required mutual aid from several neighboring fire departments.
