MADISON (WKOW) -- Smoke detectors in a utility room alerted residents of a fire in Madison.
It happened at the 6700 block of Park Edge Drive. When firefighters arrived they saw a smoke haze throughout the building. They searched the basement and found a door that was hot. Crews forced the door open and extinguished the fire within twenty minutes.
A fire door to the utility room helped confine the fire and minimize the spread of smoke throughout the 2-story apartment complex. All residents evacuated safely and were able to return to their apartments.
Fire damaged is estimated at $15,000. The cause is under investigation.
