MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News) Authorities in Madison are trying to determine the cause of a fire that displaced around 20 U-W students. It happened at the Casa Blanca Apartments on Madison's University Avenue. Three people were injured. Two fire-fighters were treated at a hospital and later released, while a third person who's not a U-W student remained hospitalized in an undisclosed condition at last word.
Media reports said two people were trapped on the top floor of the three-story building -- and fire-fighters rescued them.
Fire Chief Steve Davis said it appeared that the blaze originated in the kitchen area of a first floor apartment, but an investigation is ongoing. U-W Madison Dean-of-Students Lori Berquam said her campus would offer resources and support to those affected -- and she was thankful for the city agencies and tenants' friends for keeping them safe.
