Update from our friends at WIFR:
The Dane County Coroner’s Office has confirmed that yesterday’s fire victim has passed away.
Identified as Jeffrey Dover, of Roscoe, Illinois, the victim was flown to UW Madison after a storage facility fire on Route 251.
UPDATE: RS fans are saying there is a burn victim and the medical helicopter has landed at the scene and transported the victim to a hospital. The business that is on fire is believed to be L U W Vehicle Services, but not yet confirmed. Unconfirmed reports said a worker was cutting off a catalytic converter when it exploded. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Sounds like they have upgraded the fire to a 3rd alarm. We have been told it was upgraded all the way to a 5 alarm fire.
Just before noon today several area fire departments were dispatched for a structure fire in the 12000 block of N. 2nd st. This is a 2nd alarm fire. At the time of writing this, it is not yet known what structure is on fire. RS fans have sent us some photos (Posted on our FB Page) and you can heavy black smoke billowing into the sky. This is still developing.
