Sun Prairie firefighters respond to townhome fire; all 4 units uninhabitable
SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. — All four units of a Sun Prairie townhome are uninhabitable after a fire Monday morning.
The fire was reported around 8:10 a.m. along the 600 block of Village Lane. This area of town is near the Prairie Athletic Club.
A news release said firefighters arrived and confirmed initial reports of flames and heavy smoke that were coming from the back of the complex.
Sun Prairie Fire quickly knocked down most of the outside fire, but the flames had spread to the building’s interior. Officials requested a box alarm to receive help from eight other departments.
Firefighters evacuated residents who were still in two of the units, along with a number of pet cats that were inside the townhome. No injuries were reported.
The American Red Cross was also at the scene to help one of the families, while the others were said to be safe with relatives.
An investigation into the fire is still ongoing, and damage estimates are unavailable at this time.
