Fond du Lac, WI - On Friday, January 24, 2014 at 1:53 a.m. Fond du Lac Firefighters responded to a report of house on fire at 234 East Bank St. Upon arrival firefighters encountered heavy fire conditions from the first floor front room of the single family residence. Crews were advised by dispatch that all occupants were safely out of the house.  Fire crews worked quickly to stop the spread of the fire, but not before the fire extended into the basement and the attic space. Additionally, much of the rest of the home suffered extensive smoke and heat damage. 

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined and is under investigation.  There is no damage estimate available and no injuries reported. 

The FDL Fire Department activated the Mutual Aide Box Alarm System to the second alarm level.  Multiple fire departments responded to assist with fire extinguishment. The American Red Cross was called to the scene to assist the person displaced by the fire and provide resources for the firefighters.  Alliant Energy, City Water Utility, and DPW were also called to assist.  The Fond du Lac Police Department
assisted with traffic and scene control as well as the fire investigation.  Firefighters will be canvasing the surrounding area on Friday passing out fire safety information to all nearby residents
