KALAMAZOO, MI (WKZO) -- Kalamazoo’s Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of a fire that seriously damaged a home in the 1500 block of North Rose St. Sunday evening. The two occupants credit their smoke detector for alerting them that the house was on fire. They escaped without injury.
The first responding officers discovered the fire had begun in a ground floor bedroom and spent the next two hours dousing the blaze and putting out hot spots. The displaced residents were assisted by the Red Cross.
