Due to the vacancy of a four-story warehouse in Milwaukee, it was only by neighbors’ reports of smoke that the Milwaukee Fire Department was called and responded to the fire on Monday, November 7.
The incident occurred very early in the morning, being discovered just around 12:30 a.m. The building was made of brick and timber and the first two floors were almost completely covered in the fire, which was large enough to trigger two alarms. It was suspected to have originated at the back of the building and the fire took an hour and 15 minutes to fight.
No injuries were reported at the structure, although there was evidence that suggested that the building had been utilized by several homeless people for temporary shelter. As the origin and total damage are investigated, an estimated dollar amount is pending.
If you sustained injuries and property damages in a fire that could have been prevented through proper fire safety precautions, a legal advisor can help you begin the process of seeking justice. Speak with Milwaukee fires attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling (414) 271-0900 today.
