Fire with 10-foot flames doused behind Southeast Side business

Madison Fire Department truck, tight crop

This house at 106 N. Few St. was one of two adjacent houses damaged by fire late Saturday. The other is at 1154 E. Mifflin St., kitty corner to the rear of this house.

The Madison Fire Department reported dousing an outside fire Saturday night behind a Southeast Side business that featured 10-foot flames.

The fire in the 3400 block of Meier Road was reported by a passerby who noticed an "orange glow" and smoke coming from behind a building shortly after 8:30 p.m., the department said in a news release.

Engine Company 14 responded and reported finding heavy smoke and 10-foot flames burning. Firefighters pulled their bumper line from the fire engine and extinguished the debris, which was mainly comprised of brush and weeds but also contained a piece of construction equipment.

No injuries were reported and a cause of the fire was not reported.
