4-30-14 fire quickly extinguished at s. main street business

On Tuesday, April 29, 2014, at 3:56 PM the Fond du Lac Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a fire in a business at 535 South Main Street. Upon arrival firefighters encountered light smoke, while searching for a source they located the fire above the ceiling.  The fire was quickly extinguished and was contained to the point of origin. The probable cause of the fire is electrical, but a definitive cause will need to be determined by an electrical engineer.  There is no damage estimate available at this time.  There were no injuries reported.    The Fond du Lac Police Department assisted with traffic and scene control.  Alliant Energy was called to restore power to the building.  Firefighters will be canvassing the surrounding area Wednesday passing out home fire safety information to all nearby residents.
