BROWN DEER — One person is being treated for burns after a fire at a condo complex on North Green Bay Road in Brown Deer Thursday morning.

The Mutual Aid Box Alarm System reported "heavy fire and smoke" coming from a condo at Cherrywood Village Condominiums near Cherrywood Lane and North Green Bay Road. Several residents called 911 to report they were trapped in the building.

Officials say North Shore Fire rescued several elderly residents from the second and third floors of their building.

Seven people were treated on the scene. One person was transported with non-life-threatening injuries to Ascension Columbia-St. Mary’s Ozaukee.

There is extensive damage to the entire structure, according to North Shore Fire and Rescue. The building is considered uninhabitable. The structure contains thirty separate living units, mostly condominiums, with some rentals units.

Several units are vacant and the management company estimates between fifty to sixty people live in the building.

The American Red Cross is helping those displaced with temporary shelter needs. The total loss is estimated to be about $1 million, NSFR says.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
