Report: Condo Fire Likely Caused by Food Left Cooking in Kitchen

Patch's media partners at Fox 6 have obtained a Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's report that gives more detail about the fire and the man whose life it claimed.

The man who died in a fire at a Whitefish Bay condominium complex has been identified as 43-year-old Timothy Alloway, according to a FOX 6 report:

FOX 6 obtained a copy of the autopsy report from the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office this morning.

According to FOX 6, the Medical Examiner's investigation indicates Alloway was partying with friends the night before, and the fire was likely caused by food left cooking in the kitchen. The kitchen was completely destroyed.


The report states Alloway was released from prison in March, where he had been incarcerated for bail jumping. The report also states, in 1995, Alloway was shot by Milwaukee police. Police thought he was carrying a gun, when in fact he was carrying a toy squirt gun.

The official cause of the fire is still under investigation by the State Fire Marshal's Office.
