Staff report

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — June 18, 2024

Firefighters from the Bloomington Fire Department responded to a fire in an apartment building in the 900 block of North Woodbridge Drive on Tuesday evening.

The call came in at approximately 6:43 p.m., dispatching multiple units including Truck 2, Engine 2, Engine 1, Battalion 1, Truck 1, and Prevention Unit 2. The Bloomington Police Department and IU Health Ambulance also responded to the scene.

Light smoke was visible from the roof when firefighters arrived. Crews quickly proceeded to the second floor and soon connected a hose to a nearby hydrant. After several minutes, firefighters set up a fan to help clear the smoke.

The fire was extinguished by 7:12 p.m. Firefighters took time to hydrate after battling the blaze, as temperatures remain hot and humid due to a heat dome over the Midwest.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. No further information is available at this time.
