Electrical Fire Displaces Local Family

July 4, 2010

 Fond du Lac, WI -- On Sunday, July 4, 2010, at 12:44 p.m., the City of Fond du Lac Fire Department was dispatched to 436 S. Seymour Street for a report of a structure fire. Upon arrival, crews reported moderate smoke coming from the roof area of the two story structure. Crews made quick entry to the second floor to extinguish the fire thus limiting the fire to the area of origin. The residents had evacuated prior to the fire department’s arrival; there were no injuries. 

The cause of the fire is electrical in nature which has rendered the home uninhabitable as Alliant Energy cut the power and gas. Red Cross responded to provide housing assistance. Firefighters could not find any working smoke detectors in the home therefore they installed one on each level free of charge to the resident.
