Saturday night house fire displaces three in Appleton

Local News

A fire broke out in an Appleton home on Saturday evening, and now three people are displaced for the holidays.

The three people were able to escape from the home at 1035 W. Bell Avenue in Appleton.

Fire crews received the call shortly after 8:30 in the evening.

The fire raged through the garage and the attic of the house, leaving significant damage behind.

According to the Appleton Fire Department, two people were in the living room and the other was sleeping in a bedroom at the time of the fire. One person smelled smoke and discovered the fire in the garage. 

Fire crews were able to contain the blaze and put it out before it spread to the rest of the house.

There were no injuries reported.

There is no estimation of what the damages are yet, and the cause of the fire is still being investigated.

The Appleton Fire Department says this fire means there will be a third red bulb lit on the wreath for the department’s “Keep the Wreath Green” campaign, which reminds homeowners to keep fire safety in mind during the holiday season.
