Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue says an excess of lint build up
caused a fire in a clothes dryer in an apartment complex Monday afternoon. Firefighters
were called to the apartments at 27 Fountain Circle just after 3 pm for the report
of a fire. A news release says the fire extended into the wall but was quickly
put out. The dryer and vent pipe were destroyed in the fire, which caused heavy
smoke in the building. All residents were evacuated safely, with no injuries

Assisting at the scene were Fond du Lac Police, the City of
Fond du Lac Water Utility and Building Department. The Red Cross was also
called to the scene to assist one resident who was displaced.
