The cause of a fire that left a condomium with $45,000 in damages Thursday afternoon remains under investigation, according to the city of Brookfield Fire Department.
Firefighters responded to a two-family condominium at 16405 Dane Court East in Brookfield just before 3 p.m. Thursday and found flames extending up an exterior wall on the second floor.
According to a release from the fire department:
While responding, firefighters learned that an elderly person resided there. It was later discovered, however, that the unit was unoccupied at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported.
Within 20 minutes, the fire was extinguished. A bedroom area and the exterior walls of the second-floor unit suffered about $45,000 in damages.
The condo on the first floor was not damaged and has been reoccupied.
Mutual assistance was provided by firefighters from the town of Brookfield, Elm Grove, Wauwatosa and Butler. Fire and EMS crews from West Allis, Menomonee Falls and Lisbon staffed city fire stations during the call.
