No Working Smoke, CO Detectors Located After Fire Breaks Out in Superior Home

Approximately $25,000 in Damage Was Reported to the Home

SUPERIOR, Wis. – Superior Fire Department responded to a house fire located at 6831 Ogden Avenue in the Village of Superior shortly before 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

When crews arrived, heavy smoke and fire were observed coming from the windows on the east and south sides of the home.

Officials say all residents were out of the home. The fire was knocked down rather quickly.

The resident suffered minor injuries while attempting to put out the fire, and was transported to Essentia Hospital in Superior.

The resident reported he was home at the time of the incident and had just gone into a bedroom to take a nap when he smelled smoke before falling asleep.

This is when he got out of bed, located the fire, and attempted to extinguish it before running outside and flagging down a driver to call 911.

The home suffered significant damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. The home suffered roughly $25,000 in damage.

Superior fire officials say there were no working smoke or CO detectors in the home.

They’d like to note the American Red Cross is giving away free smoke detectors and will even install them.
