 Careless Use of Smoking Materials Causes House Fire

 Fond du Lac, WI:  On June 29th, 2018, at 9:54 p.m., Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue responded to 180 E. Johnson Street for a report of a house fire. Upon arrival fire crews reported smoke and fire showing from the exterior of the house. Firefighters quickly attacked the fire and were able to contain it to the entryway before it extended into the residence.

FDL Police arrived on scene and alerted occupants of the fire allowing them to exit without injury.  They also provided traffic control and scene management.  The cause of the fire was classified as careless use of smoking materials. No injuries were reported. 

Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue crews will be canvasing the area tomorrow to educate individuals on the importance of working smoke detectors and fire safety.
