Stove fire causes $7,500 in damage to unoccupied condo

MADISON, Wis. - A stove fire Monday morning caused about $7,500 in damage to an unoccupied condo, officials said.

Construction workers at a multi-unit residential complex in the 200 block of South Bedford Street called 911 just before 8 a.m. after discovering smoke coming from one of the condo units, according to a release.

Workers found large boxes on fire in one of the units, and used a fire extinguisher before evacuating the building, officials said.

Firefighters put out the fire when they arrived, but not before the flames damaged a stove and the cabinets and microwave above the stove, according to the release.

The fire is still under investigation.
