Fire Destroys Wisconsin Parole Office
08/25/2010 - A two-alarm fire destroyed a parole and probation office on 73rd Street and Capitol Drive at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Bright orange flames seared through the roof as firefighters began their attack about 4:30 a.m.
Afraid the roof would cave in, the firefight moved from the inside out. A second alarm sounded, and the fire was finally extinguished. Those first firefighters at the scene became a key part of the investigation.
Investigators won’t say yet if the fire is arson. Once the flames turned to ash, police and state Fire Marshal’s Office joined in, looking for clues as to how the fire started.
A rock appears to have shattered the front door and firefighters could tell where the flames first sparked.
The Department of Corrections is trying to salvage what records it can and is temporarily moving its 28 employees and operations to another location
