Fires damage two Brookfield homes

Aug. 2, 2011

Homes on Independence and Imperial drives were damaged by fire July 26 and July 27.

A floor lamp tipped over and ignited nearby clothes in a condominium at 20155 Independence Drive just after midnight July 27, according to a city of Brookfield Fire Department press release.

The residents had already gotten out of the condo and smoke was bellowing from a second-floor bedroom window when firefighters arrived on the scene. A small fire was extinguished after causing about $1,000 in damage, according to the release.

It took Brookfield firefighters about 10 minutes to extinguish a fire that broke out in a clothes dryer in a home at 4720 Imperial Drive just before 4:30 p.m. July 26. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Damage is estimated at $1,000, according the fire department.

No injuries were reported in the fires.
