ALEXANDRIA--Shortly after 1 P.M. The Alexandria Fire Department was dispatched to a residential structure fire in the 800 block of W. Third Street in the Gimco City area of Alexandria. When ALFD arrived, they found a two-story residential structure with smoke, and flames through the roof of the structure. Alexandria Fire Department was assisted by East Madison Fire Territory, Elwood Fire Department, Pipe Creek Fire Department, Madison County Emergency Management, and The Madison County Sheriff's Department. The fire crews seemed to gain control, and extinguish the fire quickly; most units were cleared before the Alex FD was dispatched to a motor vehicle crash in the 12,000 block of N State Road 9 shortly after 3 P.M.. The Madison County Community News Network has reached out to ALFD Chief Brian Cuneo, for information about the fire, including if there were any reports of injuries, nearby structure damage, and if a cause had been determined; but he was not available at the time due to the MVC. Continue to check with the MCCNN for updates when they become available.
