A man and a boy died at the scene of an early morning apartment fire Sunday in Kenosha, according to authorities. Kenosha Police and Fire department personnel responded to the fire just after 1 a.m. that was discovered in a building in the 4900 block of 36th Avenue, according to a release from the Kenosha Police Department. According to authorities, firefighters worked quickly and had the fire extinguished within the hour. The fire was contained to the building’s second floor, but officials determined that smoke and water damage rendered the structure uninhabitable. “Sadly, there were two fatalities. An adult male and a juvenile male died at the scene,” the release states. “As a standard practice, the Kenosha Police Department will treat this as a crime scene; however, at this point, there is no evidence suggesting foul play.
