Fire causes $50,000 in damage to east side apartment


MADISON (WKOW) -- Firefighters say a fire at an apartment on Madison's east side caused $50,000 in damage.

Crews were leaving a crash when they noticed heavy black smoke in the sky. As they were turning onto Camden Road, a full fire response was dispatched to the 4900 block of Camden.

Firefighters noticed smoke and flames coming from an apartment on the second floor of a 4-unit complex.

Two adults and four children were home when the fire broke out and they were able to get out safely.

The Madison Fire Department says the fire began in the kitchen area of one apartment. The second level of the building suffered smoke damage. An apartment on the first floor and basement level has minor water damage.

After some repairs, everyone was allowed back into the complex Tuesday night, except for the residents of the apartment where the fire began.
