Early morning fire damages Qdoba, Wings Over Madison on Near West Side, authorities say

Qdoba, Wings Over Madison fire

A fire early Wednesday morning damaged Qdoba and Wings Over Madison in the 2700 block of University Avenue on the Near West Side, the Madison Fire Department reported.

A fire early Wednesday damaged Qdoba and Wings Over Madison in the 2700 block of University Avenue on the Near West Side, the Madison Fire Department said.

Shortly after 1:30 a.m., an employee of Wings Over Madison called 911 to report that Qdoba, which was closed, was full of smoke, Fire Department spokesperson Bernadette Galvez said in a report.

Within two minutes, the person reported seeing flames inside Qdoba, which is attached to Wings Over Madison, and as the employees of Wings Over Madison evacuated, they saw flames outside the signage, behind the parapet wall, Galvez said.

Fire crews were dispatched at 1:34 a.m. and arrived at 1:38 a.m. to find flames visible through the roof of the building. They forced their way into the business and did a search of the building to ensure no one was inside, Galvez said.

Firefighters quickly knocked down the blaze and saved the businesses from being destroyed, Galvez said.

No cause or damage estimate was available as the investigation continued, Galvez said.
