Collateral damage from Madison apartment building fire piles up

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The heat from a Madison apartment fire August 8th actually melted parts of a city fire truck.

That fire was so big it was observed on weather radar and it damaged more than a dozen nearby homes.

A Madison Fire Department spokesperson says crews arriving to fight the fire could feel the heat from 100 feet away while still inside their truck.

That apartment building had been under construction and it was destroyed.

One homeowner who lives a block away says he has had to spend $7,000 to repair the damage to his home.
