MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Investigators are looking into a fire Thursday morning at the UW Medical Sciences Center on the Madison campus.
Fire Department spokeswoman Lori Wirth said it started on the fourth floor in one or more rooms near the back of the structure. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
The 6th floor of the medical facility had a number of animals – and at least one had to be removed while the others appeared to be okay.
Firefighters were called just after 8 a.m. The fire was under control in less than an hour, but units were still on the scene late Thursday morning to ventilate smoke and make sure there were no smoldering hot spots.
The main Medical Sciences building along University Avenue in Madison had to be evacuated, along with two others just to the north of the structure.
