Fire Caused $15M Damage to Wisconsin Government Building

July 9, 2014

State officials say a fire in a Madison, Wis., government building in May caused about $15 million in damage.

The Madison Fire Department initially estimated the damage at $350,000. But the state Department of Administration released a statement Thursday saying the damage estimate grew as the agency spoke with the state’s insurance provider. The agency said the $15 million figure could fluctuate in coming months as repairs are completed.

The state’s insurance policy requires the state to pay the first $3 million in damages.
