Pizza Man Milwaukee:By Sharif Durhams, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Jan. 19–Milwaukee firefighters are battling a four-alarm fire in the east side apartment building that also houses Pizza Man.

The fire started about at 3:33 a.m. in the 2300 block of N. Oakland Ave., according to emergency scanner reports.

About 150 firefighters are on the scene of the blaze and officials have not declare that the fire is under control, a fire department spokeswoman said at 7 a.m. All of the occupants of the building have been evacuated and no firefighters have been injured, Acting Fire Chief Michael Jones said.

A part of the building appeared to collapse as firefighters fought the blaze. Fire Department spokeswoman Tiffany Wynn said that the building was a total loss.

The fire quickly escalated to a four-alarm blaze, Jones said. Firefighters from other agencies are helping to cover other areas of Milwaukee.

The state fire Marshall has been called to the scene. Firefighters have been dealing with low water pressure and needed help from We Energies to remove nearby power lines.

The night club CUSH, the Greek restaurant Grecian Delight and the Black and White Cafe are in the same building as Pizza Man.

A spokeswoman for the American Red Cross said there are 10 apartment units above the businesses and that at least two apartment occupants have asked the organization for assistance.
