RICHFIELD — A shooting-gallery arcade game was the cause of a fire at a Cabela's in the Village of Richfield on Thursday night.

Washington County Sheriff's deputies and Richfield firefighters responded to the fire alarm at 11:17 p.m. Upon locating smoke, fire departments from Germantown, Hartford, Jackson and Slinger also responded.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office said the fire originated on the second floor and appeared to be electrical. It was extinguished by the Cabela's sprinkler system.

About 3,000 gallons of water was expelled from the sprinklers to put out the fire.

Nearly 5,000 square feet of the store was damaged by smoke and water.

No one was injured in the fire.
