Sturgeon Bay resident displaced after apartment fire

A candle in an entertainment center is to blame for a fire in an apartment Wednesday afternoon. The Sturgeon Bay Fire Department responded to the fire shortly before 3:40 p.m. Sturgeon Bay Assistant Fire Chief Kalin Montevideo says thanks to the quick work of a neighbor, the fire was largely extinguished by the time firefighters arrived.

There were no injuries from the fire, but the affected resident will have to stay with her friend until other arrangements can be made. The American Red Cross of Wisconsin responded to ensure she had temporary housing figured out and the essentials she would need. Communications Director Justin Kern says this was the third time in the last year the American Red Cross of Wisconsin had responded to a fire in Sturgeon Bay, dating back to February when a blaze destroyed the building that housed Butch’s Bar and killed two people.
