At approximately 3:00 a.m. yesterday (Monday, May 14) Milwaukee Fire Department crews responded to a house fire in the 3800 block of N. 25th St. in the 7th District. Two elderly occupants of the home were found unresponsive and not breathing on the first floor, and MFD personnel initiated advanced life support efforts.

Sadly, despite those efforts both individuals did not survive.

My sincere condolences go out to the loved ones and friends of the victims, and I wish them peace during this difficult time.

MFD has reported that the home where this fire broke out did not have working smoke detectors. I strongly urge everyone in Milwaukee to please check your smoke detector today, and make sure to check it on a monthly basis. If you do not have a working smoke detector you can request one to be installed FREE of charge by calling the Milwaukee Fire Department Smoke Detector Hotline (414) 286-8980.
