Madison Lake House Fire 10 Sep 12

A home in Madison Lake was destroyed by a fire Saturday afternoon. The residence on Kopps Lane is being called a total loss following the blaze, although the homeowners escaped injury. Two firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion, however, and 2 dogs from the home were missing following the fire. The strong winds Saturday hampered the efforts to fight the fire, and a total of 3 other agencies assisted the Madison Lake Fire Department. The fire is believed to have started in the garage, but the cause has not yet been determined. The Red Cross is providing assistance to the fire victims.
