Fire at Madden's

Area firefighters Tuesday afternoon responded to and extinguished a fire at the Town Hall Conference Center at Madden's on Gull Lake. The conference center was unoccupied when the fire started, said Kathy Reichenbach, marketing director for Madden's on Gull Lake, and there were no injuries. The bulk of the damage was in the northeast corner of the building, where fire suppression equipment is housed, she said. The State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating and the value of damage to the building was not yet known.
