Tenants Displaced after Fire Damages Cascade Apartment

A fire broke out at a senior apartment complex in Cascade on Wednesday night.

The Dubuque County Sheriff’s Department says firefighters and emergency crews were called to 506 6th Avenue Northwest for a structure fire around 9:15 pm. The building had a small fire in a single apartment, causing about $100,000 in damage.

No one was injured. While the fire was contained to one apartment, the smoke drifted to other apartments, so they had to be vacated for the night. Up to a dozen displaced tenants were assisted by the Red Cross.

The fire appeared to be an electrical issue and was not considered suspicious.
