FDL Fire/Rescue Crews Battle House Fire Thursday


Crews were on the scene Thursday morning for a fire that broke out at 156 Central Avenue in Fond du Lac. Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue was called out at 11:52 a.m., and once on the scene, encountered heavy fire conditions coming from the front of the 2-story wood frame single family dwelling.  The fire was extinguished but not before it caused extensive damage to the home.  

The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire and there were no reported injuries. Alliant Energy was called to the scene to secure gas and electric utilities.  The Red Cross was called to the scene to assist the displaced occupants. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Fire and police investigators have no reason to believe the fire was suspicious at this time but will complete their investigation before rendering a possible cause.  

Off-duty crews were called in to assist in firefighting efforts and to provide coverage throughout the city.  North Fond du Lac Ambulance assisted in handling a medical response in the city and the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office assisted with crowd management and traffic. FDLFR crews will be out canvassing the neighborhood tomorrow handing out fire safety literature.
