Waupun Fire Displaces Resident

Waupun fire crews responded to reports of a structure fire at 1105 Rock Avenue in Waupun last (Tuesday) night.  Upon arrival at the apartment structure, visible smoke was coming from the entry doors to the building, with tenants indicating there was a fire in a first floor kitchen.  Firefighters were able to locate the apartment and put out the fire, which the tenant had used a fire extinguisher on prior to their arrival, helping to contain the fire.  Only one resident was displaced.  Investigations show unattended cooking was likely the cause of the fire.  Assisting on scene were the Alto and Brandon-Fairwater fire department, Waupun police department, and Lifestar ambulance.
