Janesville apartment fire breaks out in bathroom

Posted: Updated:
JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- A Janesville apartment was damaged Thursday after a fire broke out in the bathroom.

According to the Janesville Fire Department, the fire was first reported around 12:15 p.m. Several tenants in an adjacent apartment complex noticed smoke coming from a first floor bedroom window.

Fire crews found the fire to have started in the bathroom and were able to confine it there. No one was home at the apartmen at the time of the fire. Crews spoke with the tenant later and apparently emptied an ash tray into the bathroom trash earlier in the day.

Damage is estimated at over $12,000.
