On February 11th, 2021 Public Safety responded to a structure fire at Fox Ridge Apartments. Fire fighters were informed of an issue with the boiler that caught fire to insulation in the attic. A brief but aggressive interior attack knocked down the fire and a thorough check done for extension in the surrounding walls greatly limited damage to the structure. Residents were not required to evacuate immediately however, the boiler suffered damage and will not be functional to provide heat. The American Red Cross was contacted to assist residents with shelter until utilities can be restored.
There are currently no reported injuries to either residents or fire fighters. The fire is currently being investigated by the Fire Marshal.
Anyone having information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 269-337-8139 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
