Parkside apartment fire
A fire in a bathroom vent fan reported by a resident at 10:34 a.m. on January 8th forced the evacuation of the University Apartments at UW-Parkside. Campus police officers and the risk manager provided initial response and alerted building residents, including two other sleeping occupants of the suite. Firefighters from the city of Kenosha extinguished the fire.
UW-Parkside Officer Chris Moeller said no students were hurt and no one required medical attention.
The fire damaged one apartment bathroom. Students returned to their residences later in the day, and the occupants of the damaged apartment were relocated.
The university is conducting a full review to determine the cause of the fire.
