Apartment fire on Green Bay’s west side at 1402 S. Oakland Ave. displaces 11 people

— Hannah O’Brien/Press-Gazette

Twelve people were displaced Thursday after a fire in an eight-unit apartment on the west side.

Green Bay Fire Department crews were called about 4:30 p.m. to 1402 S. Oakland Ave. to heavy black smoke from a fire that started in the bedroom, said Battalion Chief Robert Wiegert.

There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is unknown.

Three other apartments on the same side of the unit were damaged when firefighters forced open doors to make sure no one was inside.

Tenants of the other four units also are displaced because fire crews turned off some utilities.

The American Red Cross Northeast Wisconsin Region is assisting those displaced.

Damage is estimated at $40,000.
