Fire Damages FDL Home

Fire damaged a home at 180 Ledgeview Avenue in Fond du Lac this morning. Division Chief of
Fire Prevention Troy Haase says the family left the home to drop their kids off
for school and when they returned the house was on fire. When firefighters
arrived the fire was well underway. He says fire was coming out of the windows
and they did a search and rescue because they didn’t know everyone was already
out of the home. He says they tried to extinguish the fire from inside, but the
roof was getting bad so they pulled firefighters out of the structure.  Haase says he talked with the residents and it
appeared the fire started in the kitchen, but they didn’t have any appliances
on in the room when they took the kids to school. The time of the fire call was
8:10 a.m. Fond du Lac Fire Department photos.
