MADISON (WKOW) -- One half of a south Madison duplex is damaged after a Christmas morning kitchen fire.
Madison fire officials say a carbon monoxide alarm alerted residents in the neighboring unit on Tottenham Road around 11:15 a.m.
When crews arrived windows were smoke-stained, which officials say is a sign of extremely dangerous conditions for firefighters. But, the fire nearly put itself out in the tightly-closed structure and it was completely out within minutes.
Officials say the fire appeared to have started in the kitchen and significantly damaged cabinets. No one was home on that side of the duplex at the time of the fire and no one was hurt.
The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation. Damages are estimated at $30,000.
