Tosa house fire causes half-million in damage

Oct. 10, 2009

A fire Friday night caused an estimated $500,000 in damage to a house at 11745 Underwood Parkway, the Wauwatosa Fire Department said.

The fire was reported just after 9 p.m. Friday and when firefighters arrived about 3 minutes after getting the call they saw flames shooting through the home's roof, the department said.

It took about 45 minutes to get the fire under control.

The residents were not at home when the fire broke out, the department said.

The cause of the fire has not been determined, but it does not appear to be suspicious, the department said.

The house had just undergone significant renovation.
