Four families displaced in apartment fire

At least four families are without a home after a fire at an apartment complex in Beaver Dam on Friday afternoon.

Firefighters responded to the Lakeshore Apartments building, 112 Lakecrest Drive, around 12:30 p.m. on a report of a fire.

Firefighters found smoke and flames coming from the upper and lower floors of the building. Two people had to be rescued from the second floor, officials said.

Three people were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

A Beaver Dam fire captain said more people may be displaced depending on smoke damage.

Officials said they believe all the pets in the building made it out safely.

The 24-unit complex, built in 1978, did not have sprinklers, but fire walls did their job, officials said. The Red Cross is assisting those affected by the fire.

More than a dozen agencies responded to the scene, officials said.
