VIDEO: Ten people were displaced because of an apartment building fire on the east side of Madison Sunday night. Dane County Communications tells 27 News the call about a fire at 743 North Thompson Drive came in just before 11 p.m. Sunday. Callers told officials there was smoke in the back of the building on the second floor. Everyone was able to get out safely, and firefighters put out the flames within 15 minutes of getting there. Even though most of the damage was up in the attic and an upper apartment, utilities needed to be turned off, so no one can live in the building right now. The Red Cross is helping those ten people who are displaced from their homes. Officials are still trying to figure out why the fire started and how much damage was done.
