FOND DU LAC – Firefighters and police responded to a report of a house fire at 30 E. 10th St. Monday afternoon.

At 4:47 p.m., Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue responded to a call for a fire in one of four units in a house.

Fire crews found a fire in the kitchen area and quickly contained and extinguished it, but not before the heat and smoke caused enough damage to render the house uninhabitable for the one adult and three children that lived in the unit, according to the fire department.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

Fond du Lac Fire/Rescue was assisted by the Fond du Lac Police Department as well as Alliant Energy.
