OCONOMOWOC, Wis. — One person is dead after a fire ripped through the Hickoryview Commons Senior Apartments in Oconomowoc on July 2.

The Western Lakes Fire District responded to the complex just after 2:45 p.m. after a bystander noticed smoke coming out of a second-floor apartment window and called 911, according to a press release from the Western Lakes Fire District.
