TOWN OF BLOOMING GROVE, Wis. (WMTV) - The Holiday Gardens Apartments in the town of Blooming Grove caught fire on Friday afternoon.

Officers on scene evacuated the building after the fire started around 5 p.m. on 3522 Evan Acres Rd.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office says multiple people were not able to return to their apartments as a result.

The Madison Fire Department says they were able to contain the fire to one unit, but two other units were affected by overhaul. The American Red Cross helped to set up rooms in a local hotel for the displaced residents.

Residents of the two affected units should be able to return to their apartments in a few days, but the damage to the unit with the fire might take a bit more time for repairs before that resident can move back in, according to the Madison Fire Department.

According to a police report, no one was hurt in the fire.

Police say the estimated damage will cost between $15,000 - $20,000.

While the cause of the fire is still being investigated, police officers believe it isn’t suspicious.
